First-grader Born Without Hands Wins Penmanship Award

First-grader Born Without Hands Wins Penmanship Award

This is a story that's perfect for end-of-the-week inspiration. Annie Clark is a 7-year-old who, like any other first grader, practices her penmanship diligently. But unlike many first-graders, Annie was born without hands—so winning the Nicholas Maxim Award from publisher Zaner-Bloser Inc. was a particularly special accomplishment. The award "recognizes exemplary penmanship among students with disabilities." 

Annie is one of 9 children in her family (6, including Annie, adopted from China), and many of her siblings have other disabilities; her parents say that, in addition to having beautiful penmanship, Annie paints, draws and colors, dresses herself, uses computers and plays games without assistance.
