In addition to the five standard competition categories, the BC Regional Braille Challenge invites students who are using braille at more foundational/functional levels to participate in the Foundational Category. Foundational materials are created in consultation with the student's Teacher of Students with Visual Impairments to ensure that the event is fun, meaningful, and challenging for each student. When registering a student for the Foundational Category, please indicate clearly on the registration form. Our content development team will be in touch for more information on the student's literacy profile and preferred content.
