The Junior League of Corpus Christi, H-E-B and the Art Museum come together each holiday season to host the Christmas Around the World Christmas Tree Forest contest. Area schools are invited to select a country, conduct research and create ornaments/decorations reflecting the culture of that country for their tree. Gift cards, provided by H-E-B are donated to the schools to help purchase materials needed to create their decorations. The public is invited to vote on their favorite tree through mid-December, at which time, votes are tallied, and the top 3 trees are awarded generous prizes from H-E-B. School groups are invited to tour the Christmas Tree Forest during the exhibition, and a free Holiday Family Day and Open House is held in early December to encourage families to learn how other cultures around the world celebrate the holidays. All trees are donated to underserved families in the area shortly before Christmas Eve.
