« Every year, it's exciting to see how youth around the world envision the future of transportation. I find it inspiring to see young people incorporate social responsibility into their designs, dreaming of cars that help clean the ocean, end homelessness, and provide mobility to those who are physically challenged » (Mike Groff, President & CEO of Toyota Financial Services)
