From National Braille Press Blog:
Many of our customers and friends know that NBP, with support from The Gibney Family Foundation, offers a $20,000 prize called the Touch of Genius Prize for Innovation. What few people know is how this process works.
The Prize was developed to inspire an innovator to continue the promotion of braille literacy for blind people worldwide. Each year, NBP puts out a call for applications and receives a wide variety of projects ranging from educational methods to tactile literacy products to high-tech solutions. This past year was no different with NBP receiving twenty competing applications.
