This question was explored by DHPS sixth graders during art class and the results submitted for the worldwide Toyota Dream Art Contest are very inspiring.
The contest encourages children under the age of 8 years; 8 to 11 years and 12 to 15-year-olds to submit sketches of their favourite cars. It was first held in Japan in 2004 and remains one of the largest global contests that allow children to share their ideas about the future of cars while simultaneously encouraging them to pursue their dreams, to explore their creativity and stimulate their imaginations.
Akio Toyoda, the President and CEO of the Japanese manufacturer, conceptualised the competition as a platform to teach children to use the power of dreams and imagination while stimulating their interest in cars. Children across the world are invited to submit their ideas about the future of mobility by drawing their dream cars. The competition is split between a National and World Contest. The national competition winners will be announced in May. Namibia is part of the North-Western Province, Southern Africa, competition.
We keep our fingers crossed for our learners´ wonderful ideas – maybe they will grab one of the great prizes such as PS5s, X-Boxes, laptops and tablets. Good luck!
