The 2023 Toyota Dream Car Art Contest

The Toyota Dream Car Art Contest began 15 years ago and today is one of the largest art contests in the world. Every year Toyota receives millions of submissions from 90 countries. Youth from Guam and the CNMI participate every year with support from their parents and teachers.
The contest encourages youth to share their creativity, innovativeness and indeed, their dreams. Each year students present remarkable illustrations of their dream cars that have the ability to save our planet from pollution, rid the world of crime, and provide a cure for COVID-19 to name a few.
