COSB School Students Shine at ACB’s BADIE Awards
Students from West Virginia School for the Blind, North Dakota Vision Services/School for the Blind and South Dakota School for the Blind and Visually Impaired swept The American Council of the Blind’s (ACB) 2019 BADIE Awards (the Benefits of Audio Description In Education) in the four competition categories.
The BADIE program asks young people who are blind or have low vision to submit short reviews of any described movie. The premise is simple: kids love movies. If a young person can’t see or can’t see well, audio description provides access to all the visual images of the movies that their sighted peers enjoy. Description benefits children who are blind and others who have learning disabilities and it has been shown to boost literacy for all children.
Congratulations to all the outstanding students who participated!
