Draw 'Dream Car' to win iPad and trip to Japan

Toyota Financial Services (TFS) announces the US launch of this year's Toyota Dream Car Art Contest, which is designed to inspire creativity in youth and encourage an interest in the automotive industry. Across the nation, youth, ages 4-15, are invited to create and submit
a drawing of their idea of a 'Dream Car' during September 22 through December 13, 2014.

"Every year, it's exciting to see how the Toyota Dream Car Art Contest inspires youth from around the world to design their vision for the future of transportation, and it's inspiring to see so many also consider how technology can help address larger societal issues facing their generation," said Mike Groff, President & CEO, Toyota Financial Services.

In the spring of 2015, nine US winners will be selected. Once accepted and awarded, their artwork will be submitted, along with entries from approximately 80 countries, for consideration in the World Contest. Thirty World Winners plus their parents or guardians will receive a trip to Japan to participate in an awards ceremony in August 2015 during which four additional awards will be announced per age category - Gold, Silver, Bronze, and Best Finalist. This past year, two youth from the TFS-run contest were selected among the 90 World Finalists (Sarah Kong for her 'Helping Car' and Lauren Park for her 'Toyota Camera Car').

Park was among 30 youth worldwide chosen as World Winners to go to Japan. In addition, two US winners of a separate contest in Hawaii were selected to go to Japan - Teah Arlene Laupapa and Emma Hiilani Thain.
