LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville high school could see some of its artwork used by a popular shoe company.

Eastern High School is one of five finalists in the Vans Custom Culture Design Competition.

The contest judges students' shoe art in an effort to support art education.

The Eastern students and their teacher will fly to Los Angeles to find out who won this year's competition.

The winning school will receive $50,000, and Vans will use of the winning designs and produce it for sale in select retail locations.

The other four schools will each receive $4,000.

The other four schools in the top five include high schools from Hawaii, California, Oregon, and New Jersey.
