Kids Can Make Ornaments for the Capitol Tree
Young art students in West Virginia are being encouraged to participate in a contest to create candy-themed ornaments for this year’s state Capitol Christmas tree. Decorated ornaments are being accepted through Nov. 6 and will be judged in groups of four grade divisions from kindergarten through 12th grade. One winner will be selected from each division. The ornaments and Christmas tree will be unveiled on Dec. 1 in the Capitol Rotunda in Charleston. The winning classes will receive $125 gift certificates for art supplies and will be recognized by Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin and first lady Joanne Jaeger Tomblin during the annual Joyful Night festivities.
