MADISON, Wis. -

Governor Scott Walker has invited students across the state to help decorate the State Capitol Christmas Tree by submitting their homemade ornaments.

In a letter sent to schools across Wisconsin, Walker told students and staff for brightly-colored ornaments that represent goods or products that are made from Wisconsin. The tree will be displayed in the State Capitol rotunda.

“Last year, in honor of our veterans, our tree stood proudly in commemoration of 163 years of service,” Governor Walker said in a statement. “This year, I’m excited to announce the Capitol Christmas Tree’s theme will be ‘In Wisconsin.’ I invite everyone stop by the Capitol after Thanksgiving to view the ornaments created by Wisconsin’s youth.”

Teachers or students interested in displaying ornaments on the tree must make their submissions by November 19th. Ornaments should be sent to:
