If they win, Williams and Dougherty said they would like to use some of the funds to update Flagstaff High School’s campus with contemporary murals and designs, as well as updating the screen printing and graphic design computer labs.

According to the contest website, “Vans Custom Culture was created to inspire and empower high school students to embrace their creativity through art and design and to bring attention to diminishing arts education budgets.”
