Woolmarket Elementary student wins state handwriting title

A student at Woolmarket Elementary School received quite a surprise during class this week!  Prince Earl Jackson Warren has been named "Mississippi's Grade-Level Winner" in the 2018 Zaner-Bloser National Handwriting Contest.  On Tuesday, one of his teachers shared the exciting news with Prince, and presented him with his prize -- an engraved medallion.

The 27th Annual Zaner-Bloser National Handwriting Contest gives students in kindergarten through eighth grade the chance to showcase and receive recognition for their handwriting skills in manuscript or cursive.  About 280,000 students across the nation participated in this year's contest.  A student in each grade, one from a public school and one from a private school, is chosen as the state grade-level winner.  The prizes included an engraved state winner medallion for Prince, an etched glass diamond award for his teacher, Alyson Fallo, and a $200 Zaner-Bloser gift certificate for Woolmarket Elementary.  

Prince will now compete for the title of Grand National Champion.  For more information about the handwriting contest,  visit www.zaner-bloser.com/hwcontest.
