Toyota Seeking Dream Car Art

Young artists are invited to enter Toyota Hawaii’s annual competition to design their ultimate dream car.

Local dealerships, including Servco Auto Leeward on Farrington Highway in Waipahu, have entry forms and contest rules available now for the seventh annual contest. Hand-drawn entries from children age 15 and younger are due by Feb. 25. Online information also is posted at

“Last year, 11-year-old Emily Stone of Kaneohe was the only U.S. representative selected to attend the awards ceremony at the World Contest,” said Glenn Inouye, senior vice president of Toyota Hawaii. “To say we were excited and proud of Emily is an understatement. We anticipate even more entries this year and look forward to seeing the amazing talent of our keiki as they create their dream car.”

Prizes range from an iPad Mini to a trip to Toyota headquarters in Japan. A People’s Choice contest also gets under way soon. The contest is held worldwide to give children the opportunity to “develop an interest in cars and help them experience the joys and importance of having a dream.”
