It’s time to start reading! The reading period for the annual Braille Readers Are Leaders contest begins November 1. If you haven't had a chance to register for the contest, it’s not too late! You can register at www.nfb.org/BRAL now through the end of the contest, January 4, 2012.
The contest is for both adults and youth who are independent Braille readers. There are many levels of participation, from beginning Braille readers to the more advanced. Participants read for prizes, practice, and pleasure. Whether you love the competition, or are spurred on simply because it’s a great way to promote and refine your Braille skills, this contest is for you.
For more information, you can check the Web site, www.nfb.org/BRAL. There you will find all the forms and reading logs you will need to participate. You should also check out the Braille Readers Are Leaders blog www.nfb.org/nfb/BRAL_BLOG for answers to commonly asked questions about the contest and other interesting information about reading Braille!
