Handwriting Contest

Annual Handwriting Contest Discontinued

Our beloved National Handwriting Contest has been discontinued until further notice. This was a difficult decision for us; we know many of our customers look forward to the contest and that this news is disappointing.

Universal Publishing remains committed to helping students develop legible handwriting, and we will be refocusing our efforts to better accomplish this endeavor. It is our hope that these adjustments will help us provide even better resources for both teachers and students.

Thank you for your understanding and continued support of handwriting!

Classroom Handwriting Contest

In lieu of our annual handwriting contest, we’re offering materials for teachers to hold their own classroom handwriting contest. This alternative to our annual handwriting contest was well received in the past and will allow students to embrace their competitive spirit as they further develop their handwriting skills.

Resource Center

You will also find other helpful handwriting resources in our Resource Center. We provide a variety of free printables and classroom activity ideas that encourage students to write by hand.

Discover Universal La escritura

Universal La escritura, our new Spanish handwriting program, is just one of the projects we’ve been working on to help more students learn how to write by hand. This PK-5, full-color handwriting program is the Spanish version of our popular Universal Handwriting series.

We look forward to continuing to work with you to help students learn to write with confidence.
