Vans is Offering High School Art Programs $50K

Through end-of-day on 12 February 2016, high school art teachers can register their school for the seventh edition of the Vans Custom Culture competition. It’s all very easy: the program ships four pairs of blank canvas Vans to schools across the nation, sets specific themes and allows student teams to submit designs back. The winning designers’ school will receive a $50K grant for funding additional arts programming. Further, there’s the potential for the winning design to hit shelves down the line—an empowering feat for young designers.
