Experience News in a New Way
Penmanship is all about handwriting.
Annie Clark, a 7-year-old from West Mifflin, Pa., recently walked away from a penmanship contest with $10,000 and a trophy for her handwriting, but has no hands.
Annie holds the pencil between her forearms, just as she does with a fork when she eats.
Annie has 8 brothers and sisters, 4 were adopted from China and also have disabilities that affect their arms or hands.
The competition, sponsored by the Zaner – Bloser Language Arts and Reading Company, promotes legible handwriting with a category for students with special needs.
This girl is proof it can be overcome.
