“Over the past 20 years, in addition to achieving our business objectives we have also made great efforts to become a good citizen through many community activities,” said Mr. Shinjiro Kajikawa, Deputy Director of Toyota Motor Vietnam. “TMV has been implementing a range of meaningful programs in many fields, in which human resources and education have always been a focus.”
Held annually by the Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) since 2004 and first held in Vietnam in 2012, the contest has become one of the world largest art competitions for children and also one of Toyota’s many community activities.
This year, as well as launch ceremonies in primary schools around the country, TMV will also organize exchanges at dealerships nationwide to bring the contest closer to students nearby as well as its members and customers.
The event has been successfully held thanks to the warm response from customers and their children who visit the dealerships and also from the full participation of local primary school students.

“Your dreams can change the future” is the message the contest hopes to convey to all Vietnamese children in particular and those around the world in general, encouraging them to express their amazing imagination and inspire their creativity to draw their dream cars towards a civilized, safe, and better society in the future.
