I got this from another list and thought you'd like to know about it.
The National Braille Press's Touch of Genius Prize for Innovation is 
now accepting entries! Please help us spread the word.

The Touch of Genius Prize was developed to inspire entrepreneurs, 
educators or inventors to continue the promotion of braille and 
tactile literacy for blind and deafblind people worldwide. This prize 
can be granted for innovative and accessible computer software, 
Android applications, iOS applications, or tactile hardware that 
promotes braille and/or tactile literacy.  NBP encourages all 
applicants to think outside the box to what can be used to help 
improve the lives of blind people.

The winner of this prize will receive up to  $20,000, which will help 
them to continue to innovate in the fields of technology and 
education for blind people.  Frank Gibney and the Gibney Family 
Foundation, helped fund and establish this award in 2007, inspiring 
people to go beyond what was thought possible.

The deadline to apply is January 11, 2019.  Full application details 
and more information can be found at

there is a flyer attached. All questions can be directed to
