WISNER – Winning entries for the 28th Nebraska State Handwriting Contest were selected earlier this month.
On May 9, the annual activity was administered by the University of Nebraska at Kearney and endorsed by the Nebraska State Education Association and Nebraska State Department of Education.
According to a release from Nebraska-Kearney, each entry was evaluated for ease of reading, fluent rhythmic movement with technically correct performance of specifications such as the slope, space, size and shape of letters. The general layout of the entry was taken into account along with neatness of presentation.
