Annie Clark, a 7-year-old born without hands but with a can-do spirit, has won a national award for penmanship.
The first grader at Wilson Christian Academy in the Pittsburgh-area was awarded the Nicholas Maxim Special Award for Excellent Penmanship at a surprise assembly at her school Wednesday, where she was presented with a trophy and $1,000 prize from Zaner-Bloser, the textbook publishing company that sponsors the contest.
After accepting the award, Annie demonstrated for the audience how she writes, gripping the pencil steadily between her forearms to perfect the letters and capitalization.
“She is a studious and contentious student who really strives for perfection,” her teacher Laura Erb said. “She is very determined to get it right. When she does any kind of writing, she wants to make sure that it’s clear and concise and she really takes pride in her work.”
