No Hands? No Problem

Nicholas Maxim, a ten year old boy from Maine was presented the first ever Special Award for Excellent Penmanship. His writing sample (pictured above) was submitted without him knowing so the award came as a complete surprise. The judges were so impressed that they felt the need to create a new award for those in a similar situation as Maxim. The hand writing contest has been going on for twenty years and millions of students have participated. Stories like this always gives me that warm and fuzzy feeling and I am thoroughly impressed. This little guy does most of his writing without his prostheses and still has better penmanship than I do. Congratulations to Nicholas for his accomplishment
