Tokyo 2025 Deaflympics: Calling Junior High and High School Students to Vote for Tournament Emblem! (Until August 21st)
Emblem of the convention to be designed by students of Tsukuba University of Technology, the only university for the hearing impaired in Japan
The Deaflympics, an international all-around sporting event for Deaf athletes, will be held for the first time in Tokyo, Japan, in 2025 to mark its 100th anniversary.
The students of Tsukuba University of Technology, Japan’s only national university for the hearing- and visually-impaired, are responsible for the creation of the emblem that will be the symbol of the Games.
What is the emblem of the convention?
A logo mark created for each Deaflympics event. The logo is designed with various messages for each host city, and is widely used as a symbol of the Games, such as in the decoration of competition venues.
On September 3, the Tokyo 2025 Deaflympics emblem will be decided by a vote of junior high and high school students (including those from schools for the deaf) in Tokyo from among the finalist design proposals!
The participating middle and high school students deepened their understanding of Deaf Sports through stories about Deaf Athletes and voted on one design proposal through group work.
On this day, you will decide by your own vote which emblem will shine as the face of the convention.
Applications for middle and high school students who can have such a possibly once-in-a-lifetime experience will be accepted until “August 21!
