What are some things, not including popcorn, that Indiana is known for?

Now let me explain myself, I had to do 30 interesting state facts about a state, randomly, I chose Indiana and now we have to bring in a food for that state, I already am done with that part, but now I have to decorate my desk with things that relate to Indiana, and I was wondering if anyone had any knowledge about Indiana.

    I've lived in Indiana for 12 years...

    Sports are big here... The Indy 500 is Sunday...so maybe a checkered flag on your desk would work... The Brickyard 400 is in August, and a few NASCAR drivers are from Indiana, so you could add a Hot Wheels version of Tony Stewart's #20 car or something... Basketball in general is huge in Indiana, and the Indianapolis Colts are popular, too...especially Peyton Manning...

    Corn is a huge agricultural crop in the state, so you could put an ear of corn on your desk...

    The Amish also have a presence in Indiana, especially in the northern portion of the state, so if you can somehow get a hold of a toy horse and buggy, you could represent that...

    Eli Lilly is a big pharmaceutical company in Indianapolis, but I wouldn't recommend bringing Prozac (which they manufacture, among other drugs) to school...

    Indiana University, Purdue University, and Notre Dame are probably the three most universally well-known colleges in Indiana, so anything with their logos on it would be good on your desk...

    Benjamin Harrison is the only U.S. President from Indiana, so you could put a photo of him on your desk...

    Hopefully that will get you started...
