Students from the Indian River School in Canaan worked with sculptor Emile Birch to create New Hampshire's official ornaments for the 2012 National Christmas Tree.

The tree will be on display at President's Park in Washington, D.C. throughout December.

Birch and students in the sixth- and seventh-grade worked with art teacher Cynthia Cummings on the project  this fall. Each ornament incorporates three-dimensional sculptures of various New Hampshire winter activities and the White Mountains.

The tree lighting will take place on Dec. 6 at 5 p.m. It will be live streamed on the National Christmas Tree website.
