Pentel National Handwriting Day Contest

Pentel National Handwriting Day Contest

National Handwriting Day is January 23rd, 2014! And to celebrate the timeless beauty of the handwritten note, Pentel of America is inviting you to share your handiwork in not just one, but two fun contests.

So grab your Pentel writing tools and show us the heart behind your art. You could win great prizes!

What Could I Win?

At the end of each week, for the rest of January, one winner will be randomly selected to take home a backpack full of Pentel products (a $250 value)! Not to mention, the winning pieces could be showcased on our FacebookTwitterInstagram and/or Pinterest accounts.

enter just one or both… and be sure to tell your friends. The more, the merrier.
