2018 Braille Olympics

Braille Challenge Logo

Hosted by the Wisconsin School for the Blind and Visually Impaired, the 2018 Braille Olympics begins Thursday at 12:30 PM and continues Friday, February 16. We will conclude on that afternoon with an Awards Ceremony. There will be educational activities for parents and chaperones Thursday and Friday mornings while students are participating.

Housing & Chaperones: Housing is available on campus Wednesday, February 14 (plan to arrive after 4 pm), and Thursday, February 15, for students and their parents/ chaperones. Each student must be accompanied by a chaperone who is at least 18 years old. Each parent or chaperone may be responsible for a maximum of three students.

Transportation: The family or chaperone is responsible for transporting students to and from Janesville.

Background Checks: All adults who will be on our campus for these events must, by state law, pass a criminal background check. If you do not complete and pass a background check, you will not be able to stay on campus. These take at least three weeks, so it is very important to submit the paperwork in a timely manner.
