Khelo India Youth Games 2020 Mascot

The Khelo India programme was introduced to revive the sports culture in India at grassroots level by building a strong framework for all sports played in our country and establish India as a great sporting nation.
After Delhi (2018) and Pune (2019), Guwahati is going to be the proud host of the third edition of Khelo India Youth Games .
The event has two mascots – Jaya, the black buck and Vijay, the tiger. In a bid to enhance people’s participation in hosting the Games, the Department of Sports and Youth Welfare, Govt of Assam, is organising a Mascot design competition where elements and attributes in the form of attire, accessories, musical instruments etc., drawn from the rich cultural heritage of the State may be blended into the original mascots. Original shape of the mascots must be intact.
