Student Card Design Inspired by Day of the Dead photo
W.T. Clarke Middle School eighth-grader Emmanuel Collazo, received an honorable mention for his entry in the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese (AATSP), Long Island Design-A-Card Contest. Emmanuel said his image, which depicts a dual vision of a woman’s face, was inspired by his study of the Day of the Dead, an annual Mexican celebration to support the spiritual journey of those who have died.  

The AATSP Design-A-Card Contest is an opportunity for students to create an original Hispanic design for the front of a blank note card. The winning entries are printed and sold as a fundraiser to support the chapter’s Judy Abrams/Margaret Fernández NSE Scholarship Fund.
