Become a ProHandwriter with BIC
If you’re good at skateboarding, you’ll be sponsored by a skate brand. If you’re a good surfer, you’ll be sponsored by a surf brand. And now, if you’re good at handwriting, you’ll be sponsored by BIC.
We are proud to be creating an elite ‘BIC Sponsored’ team of everyday kids and parents to champion handwriting – the BIC ProHandwriter Team! Handwriting is an essential skill for children to master. It not only develops their reading and writing skills, but it also has a range of other benefits from improving cognitive development to building self-confidence. However more than half of parents believe handwriting will be a ‘lost art’ in 20 years’ time*, yet 79%* agree the benefits of handwriting cannot be replaced by technology, so we need to act now!
Join BIC on a mission to save handwriting. Let’s raise awareness and highlight the importance of handwriting through the BIC Pro Handwriter competition and encourage kids to put pen to paper, while also being in with a chance to win 1 of 10 BIC scholarships and stationery packs valued at $2,000 each.
The competition has closed for 2017 go to http://bicbrightfutures.com/winners/ to see our 2017 Pro Handwriter team, then check back early 2018 and enter to be in with a chance of becoming the next BIC ProHandwriter champions.
In the meantime, check out some additional information or download our activity sheets for your children to practice their handwriting skills at www.bicbrightfutures.com/activities/.
