Rio Rancho kids win Vans contest

RIO RANCHO, N.M. (KRQE) – Some kids in Rio Rancho are getting the recognition they deserve, taking home the grand prize at this year’s Vans Custom Culture Contest.

Teams were challenged to design a shoe based on four different themes: art, music, action sports and local flavor.

Rio Rancho was named the winner Tuesday.

The team has been a top finalist for the southwest region three times now.

The group took home the grand-prize of $50,000 which will go to support its art program.

The winning design will be produced and sold at both Vans and Journeys stores.
