High School Sports Day

Sports Day is a tradition at Japanese primary and secondary schools.  Students vie against each other running events, the tug-of-war, and similar athletic contests.  At middle and senior high schools there is a panel competition. The teams' mascot or theme is depicted in the paintings, which are made in sections and then mounted on a frame.  The quality of artwork created by Japanese students is exceptionally high.
