This Valentine Box Contest Letter and Awards are an easy way to add a fun twist to your Valentine Party. Send notes home a week ahead of time. Have each student decorate their box with a cool theme like baseball or pets, a unique idea like the Queen of Hearts, or the Sweetest with lots of hearts and fluff. Have some volunteer judges come in when kids are at P.E. or recess and judge the boxes. Print awards and give to winning students with a small gift like a box of candy hearts. I let the class vote on the class favorite and then give the award to the one the kids liked the most.
