Fifth-grader Nicholas Maxim received a unique award Monday for his participation in Zaner-Bloser’s 20th annual National Handwriting Contest.
Cheryl Hasenfus, principal of Readfield Elementary School says:
“We submitted his entry because we felt his penmanship was amazing considering he completes most of his work without using his prostheses.”
While not using his prostheses, Nicholas writes by holding a pen or pencil between his upper arms.
Inspired by his ability, Zaner-Bloser has decided to create a new award category in his honor: Nicholas Maxim Special Award for Excellent Penmanship.
