Lighthouse of Manasota congratulates Kate Antolak of Venice, a finalist in the annual National Braille Challenge who will head to Los Angeles in June for the championship. This is Kate’s seventh time competing as a finalist, placing second in 2015 and third last year. Kate is a junior at Venice High School, and participates in Lighthouse’s Teen Transition program competing in the Varsity age bracket. Contestants face academic challenges in reading comprehension, Braille speed and accuracy, proofreading and reading tactile charts and graphs, during a two-day competition. The Braille Institute holds the annual challenge to motivate blind students in their study of the tactile embossed code, which puts literature at their fingertips.
