Nine Canadian youth announced as finalists in the 2017 Toyota Dream Car Art Contest.
Toyota’s annual Dream Car Art Contest invites children to think about what “dream cars” should be, and then to translate their visions into artwork.
The artwork is then judged on originality, creativity and relevance to the “dream car” theme.
“I am inspired by our children’s creativity, artistic talent, and remarkable ability to envision such exciting, innovative and profound ideas for the future of our industry,” said Larry Hutchinson, President and CEO of Toyota Canada.
This year’s Canadian nine winners include:
Under 8 years:
Food Saver (Aidan, age 6, Ontario)
The Planting & Cleaning Air Car (Nancy, age 7, Ontario)
Melody’s Bunny School Car (Melody, age 7, British Columbia)
The Suitcase Car (Ryan, age 8, British Columbia)
Plastic Reducer (Sherry, age 11, British Columbia)
Save the Lives (Sara, age 10, Ontario)
Toyota Mobile Library (Noelle, age 13, British Columbia)
Food Bank Car (Ruolin, age 13, British Columbia)
Traveling Oasis (Zhiyu, age 13, British Columbia)
The winners will represent Canada in Toyota’s global competition, where the top 30 entries from around the world will be invited to participate in an awards ceremony to be held in Japan in August.
