First-Grader With No Hands Wins National Handwriting Award

7-year-old Annie Clark has just won a national handwriting award, even though she has no hands.

The Pennsylvania first-grader was born without hands but has learned determination in her quest to be a good student.

Her school, Wilson Christian Academy, first honored her penmanship as the best of any student in her school. As a first-round winner, she advanced to the next level and Wednesday received one of two Zaner-Bloser national penmanship awards — the second disabled student to win the new award.

Annie received the Nicholas Maxim Special Award for Excellent Penmanship, a trophy and $1,000.
