EVENT: Active Launches Collective Vision Contest at Bakersfield Shop Grand Opening

Last Saturday, Active Ride Shop and Vans united to unveil the Collective Vision Contest and show support to the local community at the Active Bakersfield Grand Opening Event. Working closely with seven schools in the Bakersfield community, Active Ride Shop and Vans are giving away $10,000 to support the art programs within schools.

The Collective Vision Contest is comprised of schools from the Bakersfield area participating in an art contest to win $5,000 for the winning school’s art program. The remaining $5,000 will be split amongst the other participating schools as follows: second-place will receive $2,000 and the other five schools will receive $600.  Artwork from the seven schools will be on display in-store at Active Bakersfield from June 8-July 11, 2015 and votes will be measured through an open ballot system where students, faculty and the community are able to cast their votes. The winning school will be announced on August 30, 2015.
