Introducing the 2021 Tennessee Regional Braille Challenge

Students from across the state of Tennessee and the surrounding area are invited to participate in the fourteenth annual regional contest hosted at the Tennessee School for the Blind on February 24, 2022.

In addition to participating in the contest, students have time to socialize over a pizza lunch, participate in some entertainment activities, and be recognized at the closing assembly.  Cash prizes are given for students with the top three scores in each level.

The contest is divided into five academic levels. All students are encouraged to participate: however, students must compete on grade level to be eligible for the National Finals in June, held in California.
