Posted May 8th, 2013 at 4:43PM

Out of 1,500 entries, Wheat Ridge High School was voted into the top 50 by Vans staff in the Vans Custom Culture Contest. The school is among ten in the Southwest Region and needs your help in becoming a finalist. Voting closes May 13 and takes place online at vans.com

Five winners will be sent to New York City to have their designs judged by a team of celebrity panelists. Grand prize winners receive $50,000 for their school’s art department. Four runners up will be awarded $4,000 for their programs.

The Vans Custom Culture Contest invites students from high schools nationwide to custom design Vans shoes. Participating schools receive four pairs of shoes for individual students or groups to transform into custom creations. Final submissions must contain a pair that aligns with the themes of art, music, action sports and local flavor.

Wheat Ridge High School is the only Colorado school to make it into the semi-finals. The school has previously placed within the top 50 for this contest but has never won the public vote to make it into the finals. This year, they strive to become prizewinners and can only do it with your vote!
