Last updated on Tuesday, November 30, 2010

(BEDFORD, IN) - Bedford native and State Senator Brent Steele join first lady Cheri Daniels in inviting area students to join this year’s holiday tree-trimming festivities at the Statehouse, either in person or by mail.

Steele states, "I am joining Daniels in promoting creativity and literacy by encouraging Hoosier students of all ages to create decorations and by writing about their favorite holiday memories in tiny handcrafted books."

Submitted storybook ornaments will be hung on the Statehouse tree at 11:00AM on Tuesday, December 14th.

Certain guidelines should be followed when constructing books:
• Decorations should be no larger than 8 inches square;
• Decorations may contain short stories of up to 300 words;
• Decorations should be made out of non-breakable or non-perishable materials like construction paper, poster board, pipe cleaners, wood, yarn and photographs;
• Decorations should have hooks or fasteners attached; and
• Decorations should be labeled with names of students and their schools.

Mail or deliver decorations to the Statehouse Tour Office located at 200 W. Washington St., Room 220, Indianapolis, IN, 46204. Please keep in mind storybook ornaments will not be returned.

Educators may call 317-233-5293 to participate.
