Teton AutoGroup Idaho Car of Your Dreams Art Contest

Contest Theme: “Car of Your Dreams”

An art contest where we encourage you to dream up the future of transportation and design a car that you feel could change the world. Since it is the car of your dreams there is nothing that's not possible. Maybe your car is powered by smiles and plants flowers as it drives or maybe it cleans the ocean and provides a home for stray animals... the sky's the limit! Dream BIG! The theme of “Car of your Dreams” invites young people throughout Eastern Idaho to imagine the future of transportation and to design their imaginative ideas and solutions for the movement of people.
