Inspire creative expression and imagination in your students with The Toyota Dream Car Art Contest. Cool Australia has created Australian Curriculum mapped Primary and Secondary lesson plans with fun activities and all the information you need to enter your class into the contest. Students will design a picture of their dream car while considering how their car impacts people and the planet. They ask themselves “How will my dream car make the world a better place?”

faber-castell-prize-packThe Dream Car Art Contest runs until the end of February 2017 and has three age categories: under 8; 8-11 and 12- 15 years. The best three Australian entries in each age category each win a $750 Apple Store Gift Card and their artworks will be sent to Japan to be judged in the World Contest with entries from over 70 other countries. Should one of those Australian entries be judged a winner in the World contest, they will win a trip to Japan for a special award ceremony!

There are some great teacher prizes too. The first 100 classes to enter will receive a Dream Car Art Contest Teacher Pack valued at over $300 containing Faber-Castell pencils, connector pens and 30 participation certificates that you can personalise for your students. Plus, the top three classes in Australia to submit the most number of entries will win a $2,000 cash prize. Your school could also win a $3,000 cash prize if one of your students is judged the Australian Dream Car Champion!
