Around 300 students have participated in the first edition of Smart Education National Handwriting Competition. The students are from four different schools located in Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, and Fujairah.
The students, who were from grades three, four and five, wrote a sentence that features every letter of the alphabet — “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.”
Their penmanship was evaluated by a panel of judges based on the four keys to legibility, which are shape, size, slant, spacing. The students had the choice to write in either manuscript or cursive.
Smart Education congratulates the following three students on being crowned the UAE’s 2018 National Handwriting Champions for their respective grades.
Grade 3 – Rashid Ahmad from Al Wadi Boys School in Sharjah
Grade 4 – Wadeema Salah from Sara School in Dubai
Grade 5 – Reem Al Naqbi from Omama Bint Abi Al Aas School in Fujairah
