GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., — Six students from Grand Rapids will head to the nation’s capitol Thursday to see ornaments they designed become part of the National Christmas Tree lighting ceremony.

The National Christmas Tree is surrounded by 56 other trees. Every year, ornaments are made by American organizations for the trees. There is a tree for every state, territory and the District of Columbia.

The students were selected by Governor Rick Snyder’s office to custom design ornaments for Michigan’s state tree.

The students all attend West Michigan Center for the Arts and Technology.

The ceremony is scheduled for 4:30 p.m., and the public can watch the ceremony via live stream.
