Beauty was created by God for a purpose: to give us the experience of wonder. And wonder, in turn, is intended to lead us to the ultimate human expression and privilege: worship. Beauty is both a gift and a map. It is a gift to be enjoyed and a map to be followed back to the source of the beauty with praise and thanksgiving.

| Call for Ornaments for State Christmas Tree|
Submitted ornaments can vary from traditional to contemporary arts. Items that are commercially produced or made from kits are not eligible. This is a great art project for elementary classes, Scout troops, 4-H clubs, residents of assisted living center, as well as a great family project. This year's motif is wooden ornaments, but ornaments can also be of any medium of the designer's choosing.
Each ornament should include the name of the person entering it, and a brief one or two line description of the ornament that includes the art form used, the special circumstances through which it was created, such as a class or senior center project. A descriptive listing will be available at the ceremony and will be mailed to everyone who submits an ornament.
Ornaments must be received in the NDCA office no later than Friday, November 15th. They become the property of the NDCA and will be hung on the state tree in ensuing years. Ornaments should be mailed to the NDCA, 1600 E. Century Ave., Suite 6, Bismarck, ND 58503-0649.
