A release from Virginia Lottery reads that all K-12 students enrolled in Virginia’s public schools have the opportunity to enter artwork to the contest for the chance to have it appear on thank-you notes distributed to thousands of teachers during National Teacher Appreciation Week in May.

Through Jan. 31, artwork can be submitted online HERE, with winners selected from three levels — elementary, middle and high school.

Each winner’s school will receive $1,000 from both The Supply Room and the Virginia Lottery for a total of $2,000; winning artists will win a $150 Visa gift card.

The 2021 winners are as follows:

The winners’ artwork appeared on more than 30,000 digital and printed thank-you notes during the 2021 Thank a Teacher campaign.

Thank a Teacher serves as a statewide campaign that encourages students, parents and the public to send thank-you notes to Virginia’s public school teachers during National Teacher Appreciation Week.

To date, Virginians have sent more than 100,000 thank-you notes featuring a unique web code teachers can use for a chance to win a Virginia-themed vacation.
