Ewell Elementary School Students on Smith Island to make Ornaments for the Maryland tree that is located near the National Christmas Tree

Artist Katherin Dilworth stated, "Each year the National Park Service chooses an artist from each state to work with children there and create ornaments for one of 52 trees that surround the National Christmas Tree. Each tree represents a state or territory, and the only requirement is that the ornaments reflect something about the state. I had proposed doing some kind of project that would look at the animals and plants that are being affected by sea-level rise in the Chesapeake Bay. I haven't settled on exactly the artistic method that I will use with the kids, but the park service supplies 12 plastic globes, and I will bring any additional materials with me."
