Organizing committee of "National sign language performance program" formed with governor as chairperson 

February 24, 2015  

Tottori-shi, Tottori Prefecture:

The "National Sign Language Kosher" (the national sign language performance program), which high school students compete in songs or dance using sign language, was held for the first time in November, 2014 at Tottori-shi in western Japan. An excellent performance by 20 teams across Japan was  highly praised. 

Assuming that the program also would lead to more understanding and spread of sign language, Tottori-Prefecture set up an organizing committee, which made Governor Hirai Shinji a chairperson, on February 23 in order to expand a highly valued program more nationwide again.
