Designed to inspire creativity in youth and encourage an interest in the automotive industry, the contest is open to youth, ages 4-15, who are invited to create and submit a drawing of their idea of a “Dream Car” during Tuesday, October 1 through Saturday, December 14, 2013. Full contest details, along with official entry forms and questionnaires, can be accessed online by clicking HERE. Check out artwork by last year’s U.S. winners HERE!

In the spring of 2014, nine U.S. winners will be selected to receive an iPad Mini plus an award certificate. Once awarded and accepted, their artwork will be submitted, along with entries from over 70 countries, for consideration in the World Contest. The selected winners will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to Japan to participate in an awards ceremony in August 2014.

All Toyota divisions and affiliates are encouraging young people across the country to participate. “We always look for ways to inspire innovation and to enrich the lives of youth,” said Mike Groff, incoming President & CEO of Toyota Financial Services. “Art is an integral part of many of our youth-oriented service programs. Often, when volunteering or mentoring, our associates engage with the kids through art projects as a way to help establish a rapport and build friendships.”
