Idaho Student to Light Capitol Tree Tuesday
A St. Mary's fifth grader is about to have her big moment in Washington DC! Here's how you can see it live!
A few weeks ago, I told you that Isabella Gerard, a fifth grader at St. Mary's Catholic, won the "An Idaho Mountain Gem" contest with her poem about hiking in McCall. The grand prize? A chance to help light the Idaho raised Christmas tree taking center stage on the U.S. Capitol lawn in Washington D.C. this holiday season.
Well, Tuesday is Isabella's big day! The spruce hailing from the Payette National Forest will be lit at 3 p.m. Isabella will have a little help from Speaker of the House Paul Ryan.
Want to watch it happen live? Our friends at KTVB will air it live Tuesday afternoon.
