Girl With No Hands Wins Handwriting Contest

May 9, 2016



I don’t enjoy teaching handwriting, but I’m sure this girl’s teacher will always think positively about the teaching the skill.

What an achievement!


This 7-year-old was born without hands, but she has a can-do attitude and stu-pen-dous writing skills.

Despite her disability, first-grader Anaya Ellick has beautiful penmanship and recently became a winner in the Zaner-Bloser 2016 National Handwriting Competition. 

Anaya, who was presented with a check and trophy, won the Nicholas Maxim Special Award for Excellence in Manuscript Penmanship. The category is for individuals in kindergarten through eighth grade who have a cognitive delay, or an intellectual, physical or developmental disability.
