Art students 1 of 5 finalists in Vans competition

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A group of high school students has been voted into the finals of a design contest.

The voting for the Vans Custom Culture contest ended at midnight on May 13 and Eastern High School was able to make the cut, scoring enough votes to win the southeast region of the contest.

Students in Trisha Hamilton-Cooper's art class worked together to design four different pair of shoes to submit.

The school is now one of five finalists in the competition and their designs will now be judged by a celebrity panel. Vans will give the school a travel budget for the students to fly to New York City for the June 11 event.

If they win they will receive $50,000 toward their school's art program and their designs will be featured on Vans shoes. Each runner up will receive $4,000 to go to their schools art program.
