Atttttenshun! Vans is sending out a nationwide call to join Vans Custom Culture and take part in a sneaker customization contest open to high school art classes across the United States. The Vans Custom Culture contest, which begins registration March 1 at vans.com/customculture, culminates with an expenses-paid trip to Los Angeles in May for representatives from four schools to take part in an art showcase.
Each high school art class that registers will receive four pairs of Vans shoes on which to display their collective creativity. All registration and submissions will take place via the Vans Custom Culture web site at vans.com/customculture.
"In a time when schools are faced with shrinking budgets, art education is often a discipline that is overlooked," said Doug Palladini, Vans Vice President of Marketing. "Vans has always supported creative expression and we hope the Custom Culture program will inspire young art students and draw attention to high school art programs nationwide."
Winning schools from each region will receive a budget for a trip to Los Angeles that includes a Welcome BBQ and tour of Vans headquarters in Orange County and the final event held at an art gallery in May 15, 2010 in Los Angeles. The winning school will receive a grand prize pack for their class, tickets to the Vans Warped Tour in their area and a $10,000 donation to their school's art program.
