This 1997 home movie captures a Special Olympics track and field competition in Austin. Austin and its surrounding cities make up Area 13, the Central Texas region for the Special Olympics. Along with the flame lighting ceremony, the footage shows Texas School for the Deaf students competing in various sprinting and standing long jump events.
Located in Austin, the Texas School for the Deaf is both a statewide and national leader in deaf education. The school first opened its doors in 1857 with only four male students. In 2009, the school housed over 500 students on campus, with many others in summer and short programs. TSD also offers outreach programs to families of students with hearing disabilities outside the Austin area.
