All 4th grade or 9 year old students, living within the boundaries of the Sequim School District, are invited to create an ornament to help decorate the Holiday Tree to be on display in the Sequim Civic Center, 152 W. Cedar Street. The tree will be up from November 30, 2015 through the first of January, 2016.
The theme for all student-created ornaments is Nature's Creatures on the Olympic Peninsula. Any materials are acceptable for the ornaments as long as they are dry. No live entries, candles, batteries or flammable materials are allowed. Ornaments can be no smaller than 2”x2”x2” and no larger than 5”x5”x5”. There are no color restrictions. All ornaments must be presented with a loop (wire, ribbon or cord) for attachment of a hanging hook.
Ornaments are to be delivered to Sequim Civic Center on Monday, November 23, 2015 between 2:00pm and 4:30pm. If needed, arrangements for an alternative delivery day or time can be arranged. The decorated tree will be on display by Monday, November 30, 2015. The Tree Lighting and Official Reception for all student participants and their parents will be held in conjunction with the First Friday Art Walk on December 4 from 4:00pm to 6:00pm.
All students will receive a photo and commemorative card as a Thank You remembrance for their participation when their ornaments are returned in January. No financial compensation will be offered to any participant.
This Inaugural Holiday Tree decorating event is sponsored by the Sequim City Arts Advisory Commission and the goal is to make this an annual event for all 4th grade and 9 year old students within our community.
