Indiana youngsters were invited to create an ornament for placement on the state’s official holiday tree in the Statehouse Rotunda or on a tree at the Governor’s Residence. This year’s theme was "Pets Across Indiana". Students were asked to create an ornament that celebrates a special pet that they have known or maybe even one that they would like to have.
