Toyota Motor Corporation on Saturday launched its 9th Toyota Dream Aar Art Contest, a picture drawing contest for kids, with the aim of inspiring creativity in youth and encouraging their interest in the automotive industry.
This is the second time for Myanmar to be among the participating countries. The Japanese automaker expects to receive more than 1,000 drawings from children 15 years of age and below. Of them, nine winners from three categories will be chosen to
participate in the world contest, said U Aye Zaw, chairman of TTAS Co Ltd, Toyota’s first authorized dealer in Myanmar.
Celebrity Chit Thu Wai, a judge of the contest, urged parents to encourage their children to create artworks with their own ideas, as a majority of young people in the country are influenced by their parents.
Artist Nyein Chan Su said the contest may help children to develop their imagination, and invited people to enjoy the two-day Japan-Myanmar event which will be held in Yangon on 6 and 7 December where children will receive an opportunity to reveal their artistic skills.
As part of its social contribution initiatives, Toyota Motor Corporation, Japan’s largest automaker, has held the contest since 2004 around the world.  The 8th  contest attracted more than 660,000 children from over 70 countries.
In Myanmar, 324 children took part in the contest. Eain Oo Thwe, a seven-year-old girl, was one of the winners in the last year’s contest, with her drawing being selected among the best 90 in the world contest. She said her winning artwork was created based on her dreams and that she planned to try again to be victorious in the world contest.
