If you haven't written, or received, a handwritten note recently, you're not alone.
A British study finds one in three people hasn't written anything, by hand, in months. But in the Cy-Fair school district there's proof that the art of handwriting isn't dead, yet.
Out of hundreds of thousands of school kids, across the country, who entered a national handwriting contest, a third grader at Sampson Elementary has been named tops, in Texas.
9 year-old Emma Farmer received her prize at a surprise assembly at the school.
She's a soft-spoken kid whose written word seems greater than her voice.
"I was proud of myself, and I didn't know I was that good at handwriting," says Farmer.
When asked how important handwriting is now, Farmer responds, "Pretty important...'cus you have to know how, for the rest of your life."
As a Texas winner, Emma is eligible to compete for the national title and a share of up to a hundred thousand dollars in scholarship money.
