As the summer winds down and getting back to school supplies, is at the forefront of our minds, there is a contest that appeals to school age children of all ages! Crayola has kicked off a student art contest "Thank A Teacher"
Ten grand prize packs will be awarded, inclusive of:
$10,000 classroom makeover for the teacher
One year supply of Crayola products for the school
$1,000 scholarship for the student
$1,000 gift card for both the teacher and school
Free CreatEd seminar for the school
In addition to the grand prizes, one lucky entrant will have his or her thank you note featured on a special pack of Crayola crayons this holiday. In addition, a weekly sweepstakes will run concurrently with the contest, offering entrants a chance to win $500 gift cards for themselves and their teachers. The contest and sweepstakes will run through August 25, 2018.
Students can enter daily for a chance to score the weekly cash prize of $500 for themselves and $500 for their favorite teacher. Plus, each thank-you note means a chance to be selected as one of nine finalists to win a grand prize of $10,000 for a classroom makeover. One winning student’s note will also be featured on a box of Crayola crayons.
Crayola is also using the contest to encourage students to get creative with other ways to thank teachers, including thanking a teacher on social media with #CrayolaThanks for a chance to be featured on the contest page.
The ultimate goal of the contest is to reach one million teacher thank-you notes, so that only means one thing: Time to get your favorite Crayola crayons, markers, colored pencils and paints and get creative!
Even though our little one's won't be starting 1st and 4th Grade for a few weeks, they both still wanted to make a note to thank their favorite teachers from last year!
