Great Bridge Nationally Recognized in Wearable Art Competition

Chesapeake’s Great Bridge High is being recognized for an unique way to showcase art. The school is one of top 50 finalists, only school in Virginia, in the Vans Custom Culture art competition.

The competition saw students take four blank pairs of Vans shoes and turn them into art with the theme of Vans’ “Off the Wall lifestyle: action sports, arts, music and local flavor.”

The competition culminates in a final event this June where five schools will be awarded with an all-expense paid trip to Los Angeles to showcase their designs to a panel of celebrity judges. The top finalists will be selected through public voting starting now until May 10.

Great Bridge High School is currently listed along with all the other finalists at where people can go in and vote.

The winning school will receive $50,000 towards its art program and the potential of one of its designs sold in Vans retail location. The four-runner up schools will be receiving $4,000 towards their art program.
