LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Kentucky students are showcasing their reading and writing skills in Braille.

The Kentucky Braille Challenge was hosted by the American Printing House for the Blind and Kentucky School for the Blind.  The national competition was created to encourage the reading and writing of Braille.

This is just one of 42 regional events.  Those who advance will go to Los Angeles for the finals.

Chairman Jamie Blome explains, "They have competitions in spelling, charts and graphics, reading, and proofreading.  It's the only competition that celebrates Braille and the academic achievement of those who are Braille readers."

The day kicked off with an opening ceremony and even some local mascots joined in on the fun.
