Calling all students in Elementary and Junior & Senior High! Submission of entries for the "Salamat Po!" Nationwide Letter Writing Project Year 4 is now open. Spearheaded by the Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPost), in partnership with the Department of Education (DepEd), the project aims to encourage the youth to express their gratitude, show love and appreciation and uplift the morale of other people while bringing back the old fashion way of letter writing. What you need to do is write a thank you message to anyone  you want. It could be in Filipino or English. Don't forget to follow the required format along with the other important details then send it through the Post Office or any accredited Postal Stations. If the recipient lives abroad, you may use the Airmail service, published rates applied. For every letter sent via ordinary mail service, you will be entitled to one (1) raffle ticket while those sent abroad will receive two (2) raffle tickets. Together with your teacher, fill up and sign the raffle stub then drop it at the designated drop boxes located at participating and accredited post offices and postal stations. One (1) student will take home P50,000 in the Grand Raffle. The teacher and the school will also receive the same prize amount as the student. On the other hand, P10,000 awaits the Semi-Grand Draw winner as well as the school and teacher who encouraged him to write.
