Competing with 500 schools nationwide, Clay High School in Oregon managed to place second by showing off their artistic prowess on a unique canvas— Vans tennis shoes. The 11th annual Vans Custom Culture high school competition earned the Clay’s art program $10,000 for their win in the digital category, along with a digital lesson from a Vans art ambassador this fall. We couldn’t be more proud of these talented young artists!
