WASHINGTON, D.C. – Visitors viewing Alabama’s Christmas Tree at the 2019 National Christmas Tree display in the nation’s capital will enjoy ornaments made by Hamilton High School students.
Twenty-two visual arts students at Hamilton High School (HHS) have created 24 one-of-a-kind ornaments for Alabama’s tree display in President’s Park in Washington, D.C.
These handcrafted ornaments, along with others made by students across the nation, will adorn 56 smaller trees that surround the National Christmas Tree. The 56 trees represent each U.S. state, territory and the District of Columbia as part of the America Celebrates display.
“It was really fun to do something that I had not done before,” said Kaileigh Brock, a junior at Hamilton High School. “I was really surprised by what we were able to do.”
