The Toyota Dream Car Art Contest is a global contest held to inspire creative expression and imagination in children – some amazing ideas are born from dreams! Students wishing to enter the competition are required to draw or paint a picture of what they imagine their dream car will look like. There are three age categories: under 8s, 8 to 11, and 12 to 15.

Learning@Home resources are designed for parents and teachers to use with children in the home environment. They can be used as stand-alone activities or built into existing curriculum-aligned learning programs. Our Learning@Home series includes two types of resources. The first are fun and challenging real-world activities for all ages, the second are self-directed lessons for upper primary and secondary students. These lessons support independent learning in remote or school settings.
