    Awesome idea to showcase the joys of handwriting. The kids are super quickk at texting but writing by hand is an entirelky different matter.

  • Angela Todd

    We’ve really struggled with handwriting at our house, I’m going to check this out as a way to inspire the kids! Thanks!

    its pretty sad they don’t teach cursive in schools anymore

    I actually used to have beautiful penmanship. But I hardly write anything out anymore because most everything is done on computers. I also used to change it up every now and again and add a special something, like changing how I wrote certain letters.

  • Jen Leeman

    My daughter is really smart, but so not a candidate for this contest!

  • I love good penmanship!

  • Krystle Kouture

    What a cool contest. I feel like penmanship is becoming a lost art!

  • Katie Hale

    Cool! I have always had horrible handwriting so know I wouldn’t have been eligible!

  • Taylor Speikers

    Wow, this is a really good opportunity especially since it seems like penmanship isn’t really important anymore!

  • Tatanisha Worthey

    Great tips– I know my boys need to work on penmanship. I feel like they don’t focus a lot on this anymore in the schools.


    Oh how cute! I think it is cool that someone has noticed that having great penmanship is still important!

    Nice! I remember I used to practice my handwriting to mimic my best friend of the time. She just had such beautiful penmanship!
