NINE-year-old Opeti Chambers has won an award to attend the Toyota Dream Car Art global awards ceremony at the end of this month.

The contest is a global competition hosted by Toyota Motor Corporation and organised by its global network of automotive distributors and dealers.

The win is considered a milestone as it is the first time a participant from Fiji has entered the global award ceremony.

The Nadi Sangam School student's winning entry was titled Red Mojo Automobile. The concept behind the artwork was a vehicle that had everything in it to rehabilitate communities after a natural disaster.

The competition is intended to create opportunities for children throughout the world to develop their interest in cars and to inspire creativity for the future leaders of tomorrow.

It was first introduced in 2004.

This year marks the 11th year of the competition.
