The “Traveling Knowledge Dream Car” is the perfect choice of an iconic image to share as inspiration for lifelong learning. Designed by 11-year-old Grace Kang of Los Angeles, California, this artwork earned the young artist a U.S. Finalist Award in the FY22 Toyota Dream Car USA Art Contest. Grace shares, “I want to end ignorance and misinformation and create a car that can bring information and education to communities that are underserved. I designed my car to look like it was magically dispersing imagination and creative ideas to the community.”
Get Inspired with Lifelong Learning Opportunities!
Through the work of Grace and many other young artists, Toyota is proud to hold a contest that inspires children and teens to dream about the future of cars while using art to inspire others to make an impact on the world. Now in its 12th year, the FY23 Toyota Dream Car USA Art Contest launched in the United States on October 1, 2022. Artwork by U.S. youth, ages 4-15, may be submitted online or by mail for this year’s U.S. contest through January 31, 2023.
