Out of all of the schools in the state, Ocean City High School was selected to create 24 ornaments to decorate the New Jersey tree in Washington, D.C.
Each student was given a county in New Jersey to represent in the ornament they decorated. Students also had to keep their theme of “New Jersey and You – Our Garden State,” with a concentration in the environment, specifically of their given county.
Students included elements such as photos of themselves, a map of the county, an important historical element of the county, the county flag or seal, and more. The ornaments will be ready for the nation to see by Dec. 1.
