Toyota Hawaii is inviting all Hawaii student artists age 15 years and younger to create a drawing of "Your Dream Car" for Toyota Hawaii's 2014 Dream Car Art Contest.
Original, hand-drawn entries must be submitted by Jan. 31 to any Toyota dealer statewide or mailed to Toyota Dream Car Art Contest, P.O. Box 2788, Honolulu 96803-2788.
Entry forms and rules are available online at toyotahawaii.com and at all Toyota Hawaii dealerships.
One winner will receive a trip to Japan to participate in the Toyota Motor Corp. world competition; Hawaii finalists will receive iPad Minis with Retina Display or cash. New this year, Toyota Hawaii will award five teachers throughout the state $250 gift cards for art materials and supplies.
Entrants are encouraged to create their "dream car" with one of the following themes in mind:
* Conservation/environmentally friendly vehicles
* Automobiles that promote world peace
* Concept cars that encourage helping others
All eligible artwork will be automatically entered into the People's Choice Competition, where family, friends and fans of the Toyota Hawaii Facebook page will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite entries Feb. 17 to March 9. Voters can vote daily. The artwork with the most votes in each age category at the end of the competition will be automatically entered for final judging in the local competition.
