2014 Custom Culture Contest


Vans Custom Culture was created to inspire and empower high school students to embrace their creativity through art and design, and bring awareness to their school's art program and budget. The Top 5 Finalists will be flown to the Final Event, where a Grand Prize winner will be determined. The winner of the Grand Prize will receive $50,000 for their school art program.

In its 4th year partnering with Vans Custom Culture, Journeys is proud to once again bring you the Local Attitude Award. The Local Attitude Award highlights the most compelling Local Flavor theme from one of the Top 5 schools. Journeys will award the best Local Flavor entry with $15,000!!
