The nine eligible World Contest Semi-Finalists from the U.S. are: Anthony Forsythe (age 15), Jung Min Lee (age 15), Stephen Curtiss (age 15), Alyssa Duhart (age 12), Kacey Kim (age 10), Sarah Kong (age 10), Lynette Kim (age 9), Leah Choi (age 6), and William Lee (age 6).

Judges of the competition, held at Toyota headquarters in Torrance, Calif., included:

Cheech Marin, Actor, Comedian, Director, and Art Collector Frank Romero, Artist Olga Garay-English , General Manager, City of Los Angeles Dept. of Cultural Affairs Jasmine Marin, Artist, Student at Art Institute of Chicago Tom Rudnai , President/General Manager, Longo Toyota/Scion/Lexus George Borst, President & CEO, Toyota Financial Services Ian Cartabiano, Toyota's Studio Chief Designer, Calty Design Research Karen Ideno, VP of Product and Marketing, Toyota Financial Services

"It was no easy task to choose just nine winners from the hundreds of submissions," said actor and avid art collector Cheech Marin. "To see the creativity, thoughtfulness, and sense of delight within each piece is truly inspirational. We had young artists share their vision of vehicles that would help their communities; others that would transition from land, to air, to sea; and others that would be simply exciting to drive!" 

The Toyota Dream Car Art Contest is an annual contest designed to inspire creativity in youth and imagine the future of mobility. From Feb. 1Feb. 28, youth across the U.S., ages 4-15, were invited to create and submit a drawing of their idea of a "Dream Car."

Winners of the worldwide Toyota Dream Car Art Contest are chosen from three age categories (4-9 years old; 10-12 years old; and 13-15 years old), and judging is based on three criteria: execution of concept; uniqueness; and artistry.
