I didn’t know Vans did something like this:

Vans Custom Culture is a national high school art competition giving students the chance to customize blank Vans for a chance to win big money for their schools. Last year, Rio Rancho High School in New Mexico came out on top of nearly 900 participating schools and took home a scholarship for their art program. Their talented students designed this pair of 106s based on an Action Sports theme.
