The Toyota Dream Car Art Contest, first held in 2004, gives children around the world a hands-on experience to feel the joy and importance of having dreams. It is also meant to provide children with an opportunity for developing an interest in cars.
Fiji has been especially honoured to receive the global Special Award: “Waku-Doki”: Exceeding expectations brings joy & smile to our customers in the 15th Toyota Dream Car Art Contest 2022.
Our winner this year is Reshav Sharen Pratap of Gospel Primary whose artwork “Lightning Flame Breather” was selected as the winning artwork from 531,692 global entries from 78 countries and regions around the world.
“It is really a great feeling for me to be chosen as a deserving person for getting the Waku Doki Award! I am sincerely thankful to all. I will continue with my art drawing and also encourage my friends to take part in the Toyota Dream Car Contest in future.” Reshav Sharen Pratap.
Reshav’s parents; Mrs. Ragni Pratap and Mr. Shalendra Pratap conveyed their gratitude to Asco Motors for running such a promotion as the reward which will be given to him and the school, will really help Reshav and his schoolmates get a better education.
The award-winning entries were selected from among National contests that were held around the world from March 2021 to February 2022, with the winning artworks submitted to be judged for the world contest. In May 2022, besides Toyota Motor Corporation, art experts and automotive specialists from outside Toyota judged the entries and selected the award winners in the contest’s three categories by age. The Fiji Award ceremony was held on Tuesday 23rd August, 2022.
We are extremely grateful for the results of this years global contest result despite the global pandemic and we hope this win will encourage more children to participate next year.
Mr. Ronald Kumar, Acting Chief Executive Officer, says that the Toyota Dream Car Art Contest holds a special place in our hearts as it involves children, the future guardians of the world and hopes that more children and schools would take on the challenge to take part in such a contest.
