Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Right now if you visit the M Resort and Casino, you'll see gingerbread houses on display, all made by local school kids. The M is donating money to the winning schools and making Las Vegas a better place to live.
We caught up to Mrs. Caress' Chinese class at Kit Carson Elementary School as the kids were putting on the finishing touches. In honor of their class -- and the fact that they are the only elementary school teaching Chinese -- they made a pagoda style gingerbread house.
The M Resort awarded $1,500 dollars to the first place school plus five pairs of tickets to a Elvis' holiday tribute show. And Mrs. Caress says she's not gonna lie, she wants the first place prize. "We have a multi-cultural festival every year and I am in charge of coordinating it and I want that money to provide food and costumes for the kids."
Unfortunately, the pagoda didn't win. First place went to Tom Williams Elementary School.
A total of ten prizes were awarded by the M Resort. The gingerbread houses will be on display through December 21st.
