Shoes have been submitted. The next time line is April 11-15th, when the top 50 will be announced. If chosen the world then will get the opportunity to vote during April 27th and May 11th. The final event and announcing 0f winners will be the second week of June, 2016.
These students did an excellent job on designing and painting the shoes. Hopefully we will have a winner.
Vans Custom Culture was created to inspire and empower high school students to embrace their creativity through art and design and to bring attention to diminishing arts education budgets. Vans believes everyone should be empowered to express themselves creatively and should be given the tools to do so.
Custom Culture is a national high school customization competition using blank Vans shoes to be customized around specific themes. Once your school’s designs are completed, they go through a voting process to narrow down our top 50 entries. Then, it’s up to your school and classmates to garner votes from the public to choose our top 5 that go on to compete in our final event. Schools in the top 5 are flown out to celebrate their artwork and have noted judges votes on the grand prize winning submission, worth $50,000!
Students who participated in the project were: DaVicious Green, LaRhonda McGee, Dylan McClellan, Makayla Cook, and Xavier Henry, and Art Instructor Kathy Gibson.
