News__ Vans Custom Culture Needs You

May 01, 2012 | By

Public Voting for the Vans Custom Culture contest is coming to a close. Get your vote on.

The Vans Custom Culture contest, which invites highschools to submit custom Vans designs to win money for art programs at their schools, is wrapping up. Until this Thursday at midnight you can vote to see five schools will be selected to travel to Los Angeles to participate in the final art showcase. The winning school will receive up to $55,000 towards their art programs.

To set some creative examples Vans sent blank Slip-Ons to a few of their favorite celebritiess, artists and designers like Conan O'Brien, Rachel Bilson and Kristen Stewart and asked them to customize the shoes. (See our very own Editorial Director Hana May's shoes here.) Vans caught up with a few of these Custom Culture Ambassadors to learn more about their shoes. Watch the video below and see the full gallery of ambassador shoes here.

And be sure to see all the amazing artwork and vote for your top five schools here.
