Decorate the statehouse tree

From the office of State Sen. Travis Holdman:

We are looking for Hoosier school children to help decorate the large tree that will soon adorn the Indiana Statehouse rotunda.

First Lady Cheri Daniels is asking second-, third- and fifth-grade Hoosiers to create ornaments that fit the theme "Made in Indiana," depicting goods or products created in or associated with our great state. 

In order to have their ornaments placed on the tree, students must submit them by Monday, Dec. 5, to the following address:

Statehouse Tour Office

200 W. Washington St., Room 220

Indianapolis, IN 46204

Students should write their names and school names on the back of their ornaments. Other helpful guidelines include:

• Ornaments should not be larger than 8 inches;
• Ornaments should not be made from breakable or perishable items, but can be made from a variety of materials like paper, poster board, pipe cleaners, yarn, etc.;
• Ornaments should have a way to hang on the tree; and
• Ornaments will not be returned

Daniels plans to feature several ornaments on her website and will notify their creators.
