Volvo XC60 Hits the Road in a Nationwide Contest Inspired by Disney Movie

Volvo is hitting the road with its all-new XC60 crossover on an eight-stop nationwide mural contest tour inspired by Disneynature's OCEANS. The eight stops coincide with the eight-cities "One Ocean, One Planet" mobile education tour along the West Coast. The tour is already underway as of April 5 and will continue through April 22.

The "One Ocean, One Planet" mobile education tour will feature the Wyland Foundation Clean Water Mobile Learning Center, a 1000-square-foot biodiesel-powered mobile theater and science center. It will be accompanied by the "One Ocean, One Planet" Volvo XC60 Art Car, which is wrapped in an image designed by renowned muralist and children's environmental advocate Wyland for a 2010 United Nations stamp issue about ocean conservation and will deliver art supplies to elementary and middle schools. The tour will travel to eight schools along the West Coast April 5-22, 2010 to celebrate Environmental Education Week and will combine the knowledge of artists, conservationists and scientists to teach students about marine life conservation, the importance of protecting watersheds, and the role of the arts in raising awareness about our oceans and environment.
"We had a really positive experience working with Wyland at a fundraiser last September so we were excited at the opportunity to partner with him and the Wyland Foundation again," said Greg Hembrough, VCNA sales and marketing manager in the Western Region. "We're thrilled to be on the selection committee to choose the winning mural, and to participate in 'One Ocean, One Planet' tour stops. We expect the students will show real enthusiasm to learn more about why it's important to protect our oceans and marine life."

The contest allows more than 15,000 students in 30 states the chance to win tickets to watch "OCEANS" at a local theater, as well as limited edition autographed artwork from Wyland and art supplies for the classroom. The winning classroom will be notified on Apr. 28
