Midway Kindergarten Student Wins Handwriting Contest
Kendyll Petersen, a Midway student in Mrs. Donnell Minta’s Kindergarten class, has recently earned a spot as the Missouri Kindergarten winner for Public Schools in the 2016 Zaner-Bloser National Handwriting Contest. Midway held its own handwriting contest in January, submitting one winner from each grade level that entered. Kendyll’s entry was among more than 270,000 entries from students across the country. Celebrating 25 years, the National Handwriting Contest encourages legible handwriting by evaluating their abilities based on size, shape, spacing, and slant in grades K-8. Kendyll’s entry has been sent on to compete at the national level. Those awards will be announced by the end of May. Kendyll received a medallion and $50 in Viking Vouchers. Her teacher, Donnell Minta, received an etched “diamond” award and a $200 gift certificate for Zaner-Bloser materials to use with her class.
