It's time for the annual Pier 1 Imports/UNICEF greeting card contest in which a child's winning design is turned into an official UNICEF greeting card, sold exclusively at Pier 1 Imports stores across the country during the holiday season. Check here for details about the UNICEF greeting card contest.
In addition to having their design turned into a greeting card, the winner will receive a grand prize $5,000 scholarship, along with $500 worth of art supplies for their school. Be sure to download an entry form soon, because the contest ends March 6th.
One hundred percent of the proceeds from the sale of this, as well as all UNICEF cards sold at Pier 1, go to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF to help in its mission to decrease the number of preventable childhood deaths from 25,000 each day to zero.
This year's theme is "Joy to the World", so get your crayons sharpened and get creative!
Open to children 14 and under (as of 3/2009).
