The 2017 Thank a Teacher campaign has ended. Check back soon for more info on our winning educators!

The Virginia Lottery is teaming up with Virginia Tourism Corporation and the Virginia PTA in support of National Teacher Appreciation Week, May 8 – 12, 2017. The goal? To thank as many Virginia teachers as possible during a week which celebrates those who help shape the future of our children. There may not be enough words to truly express gratitude for all they do, but we challenge you to try!

Thank A Teacher Events

Beginning April 3, you can “Thank A Teacher” courtesy of the Virginia Lottery and its partners at the Virginia Tourism Corporation and the Virginia PTA. You can send electronic thank-you notes right from this site, or you can pick up thank-you notes at the locations listed below. Each note includes a code that the teacher can enter online for a chance to win a fabulous Virginia-themed vacation. The lucky winner will have a choice between a beach, mountain or wine-lovers experience. So send an electronic note, or visit a Lottery retailer, event or customer service center to pick up hard-copy notes. Either way, be sure to take the opportunity to thank your favorite Virginia public school teacher!
