    Children between the ages of six and 17 are being encouraged to enter an ongoing competition to design the mascot for the 2023 Commonwealth Youth Games to be held in T&T.

    The competition takes place from August 4th to 11th and will host over 1,000 athletes from 72 nations and territories.

    According to T&T Commonwealth Games Association President, Diane Henderson, the mascot competition is a once in a lifetime opportunity to leave a mark on the Games.
