Keiki entries due Jan. 31 for Toyota’s ‘Dream Car’ art contest
Hawaii student artists ages 15 and younger have until Jan. 31 to submit hand-drawn designs for Toyota’s 2014 Dream Car Art Contest.
New this year is a teacher-recognition component. During the contest period, each teacher who submits student artwork will be entered to win a $250 gift card for school/art supplies. One random winner will be selected from Maui, Kauai and the Big Island, and two from Oahu.
“We’re already impressed by the amount of imagination and creativity expressed in this year’s entries and excited to not only award the keiki but participating teachers, as well,” said Glenn Inouye, senior vice president for Toyota Hawaii.
Drop off entries at any Toyota dealer in the state, or mail them to Toyota Dream Car Art Contest, P.O. Box 2788, Honolulu, HI 96803-2788. Entry forms can be found online at ToyotaHawaii.com, as well as all Toyota dealerships.
All eligible artwork will be automatically entered into the People’s Choice Competition. Family, friends and fans of the Toyota Hawaii Facebook page will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite entries Feb. 17-March 9.
The artwork with the most votes in each category at the end of the competition will be automatically entered for final judging in the local competition. In March, the judging panel will select the artwork of nine local finalists to submit to the international contest.
If any of the Hawaii entries receive merits in the world competition, the student will enjoy an all-expenses-paid trip to Japan to participate in the final awards ceremony in August.
The judging panel includes Department of Education Art in Public Places Artist in Residence Resource Teacher Evan Tottori, Honolulu Museum of Art School Director Vince Hazen, Hawaii News Now’s Tannya Joaquin, KHON2’s Kanoe Gibson, Shriners Hospitals for Children – Honolulu’s Director of Public Relations Mahealani Richardson and Toyota’s Inouye.
