One of the 10 finalists will win a grand prize of their thank-you note featured on a box of Crayola crayons before the holiday gifting season.
A weekly sweepstakes will run concurrently with the contest, offering entrants a chance to win $500 gift cards for themselves and their teachers.
"A colorful, handwritten thank-you note is one of the most creative ways you can show your appreciation to a teacher who has touched your life," said Smith Holland, President and CEO of Crayola. "We're excited to continue to celebrate and thank teachers across the country for all the work they do each day. We know that America is excited for the opportunity and we can't wait to see all the heartfelt and inspiring thank-you notes we receive for teachers."
