Thank a Teacher Contest
Encourage Your Children to Enter
The Virginia Lottery’s Thank a Teacher campaign encourages Virginians to send thank you notecards to educators across the Commonwealth in conjunction with National Teacher Appreciation Week. Since its inception, the notecards have been designed by elementary, middle school, and high school students, and this year, they're continuing the tradition!
Prizes include money for individuals, their school’s art department, and their design featured on thousands of thank-you notes distributed across the state.
Requirements to enter:
• Attend Virginia K-12 public school
• Theme: “thank you”
• Size: 8.5x11” paper or digital
• Keep the original artwork and submit by uploading a photo/image or scan saved
as a PDF or JPEG file
