Take a picture of yourself dressed in traditional Mexican clothes or that show the spirit of Mexico (for example: a Mexican team’s soccer jersey).  Share a recipe card and/or upload a video of you making a traditional Mexican recipe.  Finally, you can draw a picture or write a paragraph about how you and your family celebrate Cinco de Mayo.  Your submissions will be shared on the school’s website and you will receive a prize.
