Emma Roberts may be known for her big-screen roles and her rising star in Hollywood (and for being Julia Robert’s niece) but we forget that at twenty-one she’s barely out of her teens. Now, as the new face of the Vans Custom Culture competition, Emma‘s looking to inspire her former peers by encouraging high-schoolers to explore their creativity by designing their own Vans.
“As a huge Vans fan I am so excited to work with Vans Custom Culture on this great initiative,” Emma stated to Celebrity Teen Scoop. “Not only does it help to inspire high school students across the U.S. to embrace their creativity, but it also raises awareness for the importance of art in high schools all over the country.”
To participate in The Vans Custom Culture competition, high school students design their own VANS’ and the winner is awarded $50,000 toward their high school art program.
High school art programs can register for the 2013 competition on the Vans Custom Culture website (vans.com/customculture) from January 2, 2013 – February 11, 2013. 2013. The top five schools will be invited to New York City to showcase their designs for the crowd and celebrity judges at a special event in June 2013, where the grand prize winner will be announced.
