Missouri will celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week from May 8-12, 2017, and as part of this year's celebration, we're asking public school students to participate in one of two contests to #ThankaMOTeacher and show how much he or she means to you!
PK-8 Art Contest
Students in public school grades PK-8 are asked to draw a picture of your favorite teacher for Teacher Appreciation Week that shows us why you want to thank your teacher! Pictures will be posted on our social media pages, and the winner could win a visit for both the student and teacher from Commissioner of Education Margie Vandeven!
All entries must be completed using this form and must be postmarked by April 28, 2017.
Unfolded drawings should be mailed to:
Department of Elementary and Secondary Education

9-12 Video Contest
