OSD x QAS 1st Annual Sneaker Design Contest Recap..

There's nothing like finding a way to tap into the future talents of any industry to see if it's future is in good hands. We, at OSD, take an active role in supporting talented kids who love sneakers wherever they may be. Thanks to design contests like FUTURE SOLE created by D'Wayne Edwards of Jordan Brand, we got inspired to get into the action.

About 6 months ago OSD teamed up with the Queen of All Saints Catholic School, in the Clinton Hill section of Brooklyn, for our own version of the Future Sole contest.



THE RULES

The requirements were for each student to write a 100 word essay telling what their favorite sneaker is, and what they would do if they had the opportunity to change it. The students also had to provide a sketch for their submission. That was well received by the students at the school from grades K through 8th grade. We're sure the prizes had a lot to do with it, because the 1st place winner (Jevaughn Williams an 8th grader at the time) got a $250 Gift Card to Foot Locker , and the 2nd place winner now 6th Grader Paloma Castillo received a fresh pair of Adidas (her favorite sneaker brand).

WE THANK THE PRINCIPAL MRS. THERESA ATTIANESE ,THE TEACHERS, AND ALL THE CHILDREN OF THE QUEEN OF ALL SAINTS CATHOLIC SCHOOL IN CLINTON HILL BROOKLYN.

We look forward to the 2nd annual design contest continuing the fun and positive vibes that the 1st one has produced. STUDENTS, GET READY!
