THE NEW  Great Lakes BRAL Contest IS HERE!


 The National Federations of the Blind of Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois,
Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New York have joined together to
offer the first annual Great Lakes regional Braille Readers Are Leaders
contest for kids, grades K-12. Contestants compete to read the most Braille
pages, going against other kids in similar grades across all eight states.
The contest runs for 7 weeks, encouraging kids to be proud of their Braille
reading ability and to work to improve their skills -- while possibly
winning prizes in the process. 


A thumbnail sketch of the contest: 

•    A certifying official (parent, teacher, etc.) should fill out and
submit a registration form. This can be done as early as November 1, 2016,
and as late as January 20, 2017. 

•    Kids enter in one of five grade categories: K-1, 2-3, 4-5, 6-8, & 9-12.

•    Record Braille pages read between December 1, 2016, and January 20,
2017, on a reading log. 

•    The certifying official should submit the reading log form by February
1, 2017. 

•    Prizes in each grade category are: first, $25; second, $15; third, $10.

•    Every contestant, whether a winner or not, will receive a goodie bag at
the end of the contest. 

•    To get the complete contest rules, registration form, and the reading

•    Both the registration form and the reading log form should be submitted
