i love cursive handwriting contest

Celebrate the joys of handwriting by entering our I Love Cursive Contest. This penmanship event will be judged by very qualified handwriting expert and certified instructor Marie Hornback. Our goal is to get more people writing and learning cursive, to slow down and enjoy a mindful and relaxing activity.

Your handwriting is unique to you and it is something you should love. Being proud of this beautiful art form is easy, it just takes practice. It makes you smarter and you can express yourself faster than printing. The physical act of long hand enables you to really think about what you are wanting to say and express yourself clearer.

  • Grade School 
  • High School / Adult
  • Special Needs

There will be one winner in each category. They will be announced on January 23rd 2023, National Handwriting Day. Each winner will receive a certificate and handwriting goodies to continue their journey. This contest is only in English and open to participants worldwide.
