Longwood will showcase thirteen schools for the annual Christmas display. As interest in this exhibit increases each year, the exhibiting schools will be chosen based on the merit of the sample ornament. Each tree should reflect the yearly specified theme in some way. Please follow the guidelines provided.

This is a chance for individual classrooms to shine! Longwood staff will decorate the trees with the student ornaments. Participating classrooms will receive up to 30 complimentary one-day passes to view the display, as well as a $50 stipend to help defray the cost of materials.

Please note that 2016 applications are no longer being accepted. Next year's application will be posted in February 2017.
