BIC headed to 12 college campuses from the 12 to 28 April 2011 to conduct the Speed Writing Competition that was organized to promote unique individuals through the emphasis of writing. The evolution of technological advancements has placed less emphasis on the use of handwriting within students that also encourages creativity. More than 100 students competed from various colleges to set the fastest speed-writing record for 2011.

As reported in The Star, BIC Sales and Marketing Director Linda See said, “Writing a document or letter by hand always shows the other person that a lot of thought has been put into words. Technology has its uses, but it has also robbed us of the simple pleasures of using a pen,”

Participants were required to rewrite a text of 100 words as fast as they could using the BIC Easy Glide Ink System pen.
