2 Jefferson Academy students win contest

KEARNEYSVILLE – Two Jefferson Academy students took first place statewide, each in their own grade level, in the 22nd annual Zaner-Bloser Handwriting Contest.

Second-grader Brandon Dunbar and first-grader Chloe Edwards received medals for their handwriting skills. Christi Cronin, their teacher, also received an award, and the school received two $200 coupons.

More than 285,000 students entered the contest, according to Zaner-Bloser representatives. “It shows that even with today’s computer technology it is very important to have good handwriting skills,” said Headmaster Scott Hill. “Jefferson Academy opened its doors last August … and to have this great news our first time out as a new school shows a wonderful start.” — Bryan Clark
