The Global Sign Challenge is now available for individuals and organizations  around the world who use their National Sign Languages to improve children's communication skills and learning. Winners are also empowered, trained and supported to collaborate  with Early Years Centres, Grassroots organizations and Education Groups in their local communities to create story book ideas for digital and print publication, distribution and use.
