Charleston County School of the Arts students are among 10 schools competing in a regional competition for money for the school’s art program.

The magnet school students designed shoes in the Vans Custom Culture contest, and the public can vote on which ones they like best.

The Southeast regional winner will compete against finalists from each of five regions. The grand prize winner will receive $50,000, and each runner up will receive $4,000 for their school’s art program
