The National Braille Association is thankful for the countless men and women who have dedicated their lives to ensuring that individuals who are blind receive high quality braille. In 2011, we began to honor these individuals by presenting them with a Lifetime Achievement Award.

Each year, one individual is selected to receive the NBA Lifetime Achievement Award. For 2016, the selected recipient will receive his or her award at our 2016 Fall Professional Development Conference in St. Louis, Missouri.

The awardee is selected by the NBA Board of Directors, after a careful review of submitted nominations. If you would like to nominate someone for this year’s award, we encourage you to submit their name and a short description of their accomplishments today.

For more information about the NBA Lifetime Achievement Award, including a list of past recipients and an application to nominate someone you feel is deserving, please visit this page on our website.
