GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) -- It may be the week of Halloween but some students have already started looking ahead to Christmas.
The West Michigan Center for Arts and Technology was chosen to design and create ornaments for Michigan's tree displayed in Washington D.C. It's part of the National Christmas Tree display in President's Park.
Students on the Teen Arts Advisory Council worked with local artists to create 24 ornaments for the state tree. They finished up the work Monday.
The ornaments feature patterns representing Michigan and the holidays.
The National Christmas Tree lighting ceremony will kick off four weeks of holiday events. The students will get to take a trip to Washington D.C. to see their ornaments on the tree in President's Park.
