Governor seeks ornaments for Christmas tree

Governor Scott Walker invites Wisconsinites to help decorate the Capitol Christmas tree. The theme of the tree this year is Wisconsin Traditions.

In a press release, the governor says, “Some pastimes, activities, and events have been bringing families together for decades.” He says, “It may be watching the Packers, or deer hunting, or getting together for an annual Harley ride. This year we want the Capitol Christmas tree to reflect all of the things that make Wisconsin great.”

Ornaments symbolizing Wisconsin traditions will be displayed on the 2013 Capitol Christmas tree. Walker asks all art teachers, parents, youth, and others all across the state to submit their ornaments to decorate the tree that will be displayed in the state Capitol rotunda.

Anyone interested in sending Wisconsin Traditions themed ornaments should make their submissions by Friday, November 22nd.

You can send your Wisconsin Traditions themed ornaments to:
