They inspire and encourage and many times pour unconditionaly into students all year long. Now you have a way to thank your most beloved teacher! Crayola has kicked off a student art contest for 10 winners to receive $1,000 to split with their most beloved teacher.

Students are encouraged to enter the “Thank A Teacher” contest before August 25 by uploading photos of their handmade teacher thank-you notes.

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.

The ultimate goal of the contest is to reach one million teacher thank-you notes, so that only means one thing: Time to break out the crayons.
