Toyota Dream Car USA Art Contest


From November 16, 2020 through January 31, 2021, the Toyota Dream Car USA Art Contest is open for submissions in the United States.* Parents and teachers are invited to enter artwork created by U.S. youth, ages 4-15. Each submission consists of one artwork accompanied by a separate entry form signed by a parent or legal guardian (multiple submissions accepted). All submissions must be postmarked during the U.S. Contest Dates of November 16, 2020 through January 31, 2021.

The Toyota Dream Car USA Art Contest is designed to inspire creativity in youth and imagine the future of mobility. Winners of this free youth art contest are chosen from three age categories (under 8 years old; 8-11 years old; and 12-15 years old), with judging based on three criteria: execution, uniqueness, and artistry of concept.

Toyota Motor Corporation in Japan held the first worldwide contest in 2004. Nearly 90 countries now participate each year under the same rules but with varying artwork submission periods. In the United States, the art contest for kids has been presented since 2012, and is open only to parents or legal guardians of children between four (4) and fifteen (15) years of age who are legal residents of the fifty (50) United States and the District of Columbia.
