Handwriting competition is not going to solve all these problems but it can provide a focus on the skill of handwriting and spark a few weeks of concentrated effort throughout the school that can raise the whole level of competence.

Handwriting is an essential skill for students. It is an incredibly important exercise for students to encourage them to develop fine motor skills and confidence. It activates the brain and contributes to reading fluency. It also encourages and recognizes the good handwriting skills. It provides students with an opportunity to display their competency of legible writing. The response of the students was very encouraging. The majority of students had put in their best foot forward to enhance their writing skills.
The students of Pre-Primary had bees in their bonnet as they took part with amazing alacrity in the Handwriting Competition. They penned down sentences in their best hand, eager to please their teachers. The competition helped enhance their fine motor skills and also brought to fore their competitive spirit.
When anybody writes, it is just not the use of a pen and pencil on a paper, but it is a process that involves coordination between the mind and motor actions of the brain. The brain conceives a thought and directs hands and fingers to reproduce these thoughts in the form of words or sentences, with the help of a writing instrument on a writing object. Handwritten communication being the most primitive media of expressing oneself has been proved to be an effective process of learning a language in terms of correct spellings, massive vocabulary, and exquisite communication abilities, both through written and verbal forms. Writing by hand also activates the parts of the brain that are involved in memory, impulse control, and attention.
