NINE students from six primary schools have received prizes from Ela Motors for winning their categories in the Toyota Dream Car art contest.
Ela Motors chief executive Keiichiro Kuwabara said the contest was conducted worldwide. He said they invited children from all over the country to share ideas about the future of mobility by drawing their dream cars.
“Every great idea was born in the glimmer of a dream, and we hope that this activity will help nurture the creativity of the next generation of great inventors, thinkers and dreamers,” Kuwabara said.
Nine winners won in three categories among the 350 students who entered the competition which ran from November last year to January this year.
In the first category, three students from Ela Murray International in Port Moresby, won prizes. They are Jordon Huston, Elspeth Bickford-Johnson and Dannia Kenganzi.
The second-category winners were Jabes Joseph, from Taurama Primary School; Max Renagi, from Kaugere Primary; and Yvette Mariah Banovo, from Kavieng Primary School.
Bethalia Edwards, from St Therese; Lehai Babo Nick, from Kaugere; and Brenda Nonori, from Vanimo, received the first, second and third prizes respectively in the third category.
Edwards, one of the winners, said she drew was an air balloon with a basket attached that could help farmers transport seedlings, planting materials and water .
