This year's contest marks the 25th year of partnership between the specialty home furnishings retailer and the international children's organization.  The greeting card contest started in 1992 as a way to help raise awareness among U.S. school children about UNICEF's important work for children around the world, and has inspired kids from coast to coast to use their creative talents in a meaningful way.  Pier 1 started selling UNICEF greeting cards in 1985 and is now the world's largest retailer of UNICEF greeting cards, having raised over $27 million for UNICEF.  

The winner of the 2009 contest was Julia Hermann, age 13, from Solana Beach, California, who received the grand prize award for her artwork.  Joe Peterson, age 13, from Lykens, Pennsylvania received the first-ever "People's Choice Award" last year.

Julia's design featured the world globe decorated in colorful holiday lights with Santa Claus and his sleigh propped on top.  Joe won the "People's Choice Award" for his artwork featuring a white dove holding a red ribbon inscribed with "Joy to the World."
