Some schools, who participated in the 3rd National High School Sign Language Contest held at Kurayoshi-shi, Tottori Prefecture in September, donated or sent a letter of cheers for the people hit by an earthquake on November 21.
"We'd like to do something for Tottori Prefecture."
"Please come back as it was used to be as soon as possible."
The colored paper full of words of an encouragement reached the Prefecture Office in the end of October. Nine students of the Tokyo Metropolitan School for the Deaf who participated in the contest for the first time wrote their thoughts and wishes for reconstruction.
The officials concerned feel thankful for what these students did through a connection with the national contest.
