National Handwriting Competition 2018

National Handwriting Competition 2018


To enter, children should copy out the poem for their relevant class in their best and neatest handwriting on a piece of A4 paper (the paper can have faint lines which do not detract from the handwriting; paper can be portrait or landscape). Children aged 8 and under may use a pencil if they prefer.


Four of the five classes in the competition are asked to write out a set poem for their entry; children aged from 11–13 can choose their own poem if they wish or write out the poem for Class D.


Further details are on the National Handwriting Competition website and from the organiser Paul Jackson
