TOYOTA ENCOURAGES CHILDREN TO CREATIVELY CONSIDER THE FUTURE OF MOBILITY IN THE 2021 DREAM CAR ART CONTEST
The Toyota 2021 Dream Car Art Contest is open for entries and children across the country are being invited to let their imaginations run wild and use their creativity and drawing ability to design their vision for the future of mobility.
The annual Dream Car contest has attracted more than 6.2 million entries from children in more than 100 countries worldwide since it was launched in 2004. Every year the contest generates a variety of entries with ideas ranging from flying cars and zero emission hoverboards, to space buggies for moons and planets. Previous winners have also created concepts such as nanoscopic ‘bumper cars’ with healing properties, a pod that takes lonely pensioners for an adventure and a car that lowers the temperature of the ocean, preventing the bleaching of coral reefs and the melting of icecaps.
The competition is open to children aged 15 years or younger, with entries split into three categories; under-eight, eight to 11, and 12 to 15 years old.
Prizes for the best designs in each age category include iPads and Samsung tablets as well as Toyota goodie bags and entrance into the World Contest, in which a grand prize winner from each category and two special award winners will be selected. Each World Contest winner will receive USD$5,000 to spend on educational resources and supplementary prizes of USD$10,000 will also be awarded to their school or college to spend on educational resources.
Entry forms can be downloaded and full competition terms and conditions, can be found at the Dream Car Art Contest page at www.toyota.co.uk/dreamcar. The closing date for entries is 4th December 2020.
