Thank a Teacher Day (Win! A $250 Crayola Prize Pack!)

May 8, 2018

Most of us have had a teacher who has inspired us or even changed the course of our life. In fact, 88 per cent of people say a teacher had a significant impact on their life, while 87 per cent report that they wish they had told their best teachers how much they appreciated their efforts.


With the current school year coming to a close, Canadian parents are thinking about ways to thank their children’s teacher for all the hard work and passion they put into educating the next generation. That’s why on May 8th, 2018, in conjunction with National Teacher Appreciation Day in the U.S., Crayola is launching "Thank a Teacher Day" in Canada to celebrate and thank educators across the country for their commitment to students, learning and creativity. To kick off this celebration, Crayola is asking all students, current and former, to share personal stories of a teacher that influenced them on social media with the hashtag #CrayolaThanks and on with a goal to garner a million "thank yous" across Canada and the U.S. Not only that, Crayloa is launching a national contest this summer, where kids can submit handmade thank-you cards for teachers for the chance to win prizes for their teacher, school and family. This grand prize includes a $10,000 classroom makeover, a year supply of Crayola products and more!

Congratulations to Jody G. of Grande Prairie, Alberta, who won a Crayola Prize Pack worth $250! —Vita Daily
