Toyota Ireland extends the Build A Better World art competition

Young artists can get their creative juices flowing and enter the competition which aims to bring joy and creativity during the COVID-19 outbreak

Toyota Ireland is thrilled to extend the Toyota ‘Build a Better World Art Competition’ by an additional two weeks. Due to popular demand, the online art competition will be extended by two weeks giving budding artists under the age of 15 the opportunity to put their work forward to be in with the chance to win a €100 One4All voucher. Each week Toyota will announce three winners, one from each age category.

The ‘Build a Better World Art Competition’ was created to bring some relief and joy to families as Ireland and the rest of the world navigates the uncertainty due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

The competition stems from Toyota’s brand platform of ‘Built for a Better World,’ where above all else Toyota aims to create a better world for future generations. Young artists from across the country are encouraged to get their creative juices flowing to take part in this creative initiative and show what a better world will look like for those in Ireland once we are COVID-19 free.

Michael Gaynor, Marketing Director of Toyota Ireland commented: “Community and creating a Better World is at the very core of who we are here at Toyota Ireland and we are delighted to announce the ‘Build a Better World Art Competition.’ We understand how difficult the past couple of weeks have been and how challenging the weeks ahead will be for families in Ireland.

Unfortunately, there are uncertain times ahead with the COVID-19 virus, however, we wanted to inject a bit of joy & positivity into the lives of Irish children, their families and their new routines. The Irish people have an incredible spirit even in times of hardship and we feel that nothing powers the youth like creativity. We hope that this competition will bring some joy to families across Ireland and we encourage all budding young artists to get involved.”
