The Virginia Lottery’s annual Thank a Teacher Art Contest began accepting submissions on January 2, 2020, and will continue until January 31. Three winners will be chosen; one each from elementary school, middle school, and high school, based on submissions of a piece of artwork which demonstrates their gratitude for Virginia’s teachers.

In addition to having their original artwork featured on thousands of 2020 thank-you notes distributed across the Commonwealth, winners will each receive $2,000 for their school’s art department and a $150 gift card. A blue-ribbon panel of various members of the arts community in Virginia will judge the submitted artwork, and winning designs will be revealed in March.
