Student without hands wins national handwriting contest

The first-grader reportedly beat out 50 other competitors to win the special-needs category prize at the Zaner-Bloser National Handwriting Contest.

The category consists of students with intellectual, physical or developmental disabilities, and Anaya's impressive handwriting was picked to be the best of the bunch.

"There is truly very little that this girl cannot do," Tracy Cox, Anaya's principal at Greenbrier Christian Academy said.

"She is a hard worker," Cox said. "She is determined. She is independent. She is a vivacious and a no-excuses type of young lady."

For winning the contest, Anaya received $1,000 and a trophy, according to Zaner-Bloser.
