The paragraph Prince entered was written in cursive, a technique Prince tells News 25 he first learned in third grade and mastered in fifth.

Prince was given an engraved state winner medal, a glass diamond award for his teacher, and won a two hundred dollar Zaner-Bloser gift card for Woolmarket Elementary. “I never thought like in a million years that I would win because there’s so many people out there. I thought, hey, my cursive is just like everyone else’s out there so I never knew that I would actually win state. I did try really, really hard on it. I think that’s the reason I won because I tried really hard on it.”

More than 280,000 students from kindergarten through eighth grade entered in the contest. From here, Prince will compete for the Grand National champion title.
