The chosen students from 25 junior high schools in the eastern part of the prefecture showed the fervent speech by each theme such as relation by friendship or a family, club activity, etc.
In the contest, Maeda Mana (前田真那), a senior of the Tottori School for the Deaf presented discussion in sign language for the first time.
She told about a frank thought entitled "Overcome now." that she wanted to tell people what is like to be Deaf.
