Reflections Chairs, you can encourage students to get creative with the Virginia Lottery’s inaugural Thank a Teacher Art Contest.

Each year, students, parents and the general public send thank-you notes to Virginia’s deserving public school teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week. In its first two years, Virginians distributed more than 70,000 thank-you notes as part of the Thank a Teacher campaign.

This year, three student artists will have their artwork featured on thousands of thank-you notes distributed across the state as part of the inaugural Thank a Teacher Art Contest. The contest is open to K-12 public school students, and one top prize winner will be selected from each level: elementary school, middle school and high school. The three winners will not only get to see their artwork featured on the 2018 thank-you notes, but they’ll also receive individual cash prizes and win money for their school’s art department.
