Thank A Teacher with a Digital Note

It’s ALWAYS a great time to tell someone “thank you” and share some appreciation. The Virginia Lottery’s annual Thank a Teacher campaign is now open. Each spring, Virginia Lottery encourages everyone to send thank you notecards to educators across the Commonwealth in conjunction with National Teacher Appreciation Week. The notecards feature artwork from an elementary, middle school, and high school student selected earlier this year through the Lottery’s Thank a Teacher Art contest.

The public can send a card now through May 6. Teachers will receive their digital cards the week of Teacher Appreciation Week, May 2 – 6. Qualifying teachers who receive a card can enter a unique web code found in the email or on the back of the notecard into an online drawing for one of four Virginia vacations and a $2,500 in credit for school supplies.  How cool is that?!

Have a teacher in mind?  Use the online form and send them a special thank you notecard today!
