Lakeridge High School is getting $50,000 for its art department after students submitted four winning designs for Vans shoes.
Students from Lakeridge attended a ceremony at The Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City on Tuesday night, and that's when they learned they had won the Vans Custom Culture contest.
Lakeridge's shoes were chosen over the designs of more than 1,500 schools that created custom sneakers for the first round of the competition.
Five finalists were chosen to go to New York City.
The following Lakeridge students were involved in designing the shoes: Kate Kamerman, Kevin Mertz, Noelle Foden-Vencil, Stacey Strovink, Haley Bowman, Molly Zaninovich, Karalyn Gee, Keaton Weil, Leah Shearer, Elizabeth Hill, Vincent Chia, Orian Raviv, Alexx O'Boyle, Bridget Delaney, Janie Rotticci, Nicole Humphreys, McKenna Moore, Megan Johansen, Justin Goerges and Kelsey Walker.
Lakeridge teacher Shannon McBride was the head of the prize-winning art class.
