I’ve hadded a select menu in the contact form bur i’m unable to get the value send by email.

Here is my contact form code

<div class="input-box">
label for="choix"><?php echo Mage::helper('contacts')->__('You are'?> <span class="required">*</span></label><br />
SELECT name="choix_personne" id="choix_personne" >
OPTION >Votre Choix</OPTION>           
OPTION value="particulier">Un particulier</OPTION
OPTION value="prof">Un professionnel</OPTION>
OPTION value="instit">Un institutionnel</OPTION
here is my transactionnal email
type de demandeur {{var data.choix_personne}}

I thought that when adding a label on the contact form, the way to get was to get the value.

Can someone help ?
