What would your dream car look like? That was the question posed to kids around the world for the Toyota Dream Car Art Contest. With the U.S. winners recently announced, we at Classic Toyota of Tyler got a look at the winning drawings and they are nothing short of inspirational.
Nine U.S. winners were selected from around 500 entrants. These winners received an iPad Mini and will represent the U.S. in the World Contest Semi-Finals. The top 30 contestants in the world will be given the once-in-a-lifetime experience of traveling to Japan to explore Toyota City and participate in the contest’s awards ceremony.
Seven judges selected the U.S. winners from 31 finalists. The three age categories ranged from 4 to 15 years old.
Cheech Marin, actor and art collector, served as a judge. “If you take a look at the artwork these kids created, you see that not only have they designed a dream car, many have incorporated their dream car into an ideal future environment and society,” he stated. “These are more than aspirational, they are inspirational. These are true pieces of art.”
Stay tuned to see if any of our young American artists win at the World Contest in August 2014.
