TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- The official Christmas tree ornament for Kansas this year honors Washburn University's 150th anniversary.

Gov. Sam Brownback and first lady Mary Brownback unveiled the state ornament Monday at the governor's mansion in Topeka.

Twelve of the official ornaments will be sent to Washington D.C. to decorate the state's tree, which is part of national Christmas tree display.

The ornament bears Washburn's 150th anniversary logo, which shows the school's mascot, the Ichabod. The state seal is on the back of the ornament.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/TrJTZ4 ) the state will also send a dozen ornaments made of wheat to decorate the Kansas tree in Washington. The wheat ornaments were made by students at Quincy Elementary School in Topeka.
