KEARNEY, Neb. (AP) - A Palmyra girl has won the 12-and-under age category for the 26th annual Nebraska Handwriting Contest.

A news release Wednesday from the University of Nebraska at Kearney identified Hanna Thomson as the winner. The first-place finisher in the age 13-16 category was Mary Nibbe, of Red Cloud. Finishing first for entrants ages 17-49 was Sheila Sindelar, of Wisner, and the winner for people age 50 and over was Jackie Buchta, of Omaha.

The contest is administered by the university and endorsed by the Nebraska State Education Association and Nebraska Education Department.

Entries were judged on ease of reading, fluent rhythmic movement and technically correct performance of specifications such as the slope, space, size and shape of the letters.
