'Dynamik' in town

The COFJQ's Philippe Dutin, Bélanger, Pauzé, and Filion pose with 'Dynamik' chosen by jury comprised of games, city and CSDL members

The mascot for the 55th Finale des Jeux du Québec-Laval 2020 (COFJQ-Laval 2020) has its name.

“Dynamik” was the winning moniker for next year’s games, selected by a jury and proposed by elementary school students Flavie Pauzé from École Hébert in Saint-François and Raphaël Bélanger from l'école L'envol in Saint-Vincent-de-Paul. Last October, College Montmorency visual arts student Fabiana Marin won the mascot design contest.

Games spokesperson and double Olympic diving medalist Roseline Filion presented the winners of the mascot's name contest with their prizes (in addition to bragging rights and a mascot visit to their respective schools), including a family jaunt at the Cosmodôme space camp, a pass to Immersia escape games and admission to a Maison des arts event.

More than 225 young people participated in the competition, with the jury composed of members from COFJQ-2020, the city of Laval and the Commission scolaire de Laval.

The games mascot will visit schools and community events, participate in all major events and games ceremonies, and be highlighted in advertisements, posters and articles about the 55th Quebec Finale. The games will be held from July 31 to August 8, 2020 in Laval, with more than 3,300 athletes competing for the honors in 17 different disciplines. The Laval 2020 games will be using among others, the facilities, lockers and cafeterias of Laval Junior and Laval Senior Academies.
