As Jay Ward, Creative Director of Franchise, Pixar Animation Studios, put it, “I’m so honored and excited to help judge for the Toyota Dream Car USA Art Contest. It’s deeply inspirational to see the dreams and ideas created by this amazing young talent.”

Amazing it is.

The nine winners were selected from 41 finalists. There were 1,700 entries overall. There were three age categories—4-7 years; 8-11 years; 12-15 years—and the judges considered artistry, uniqueness and execution of concept.

The winners come from four states: California, Michigan, New Jersey, and Washington.

And it was a total girl-power sweep.

Congratulations to all of them!

We feel the future will be bright as a result of your work.
