"I'm really looking forward to teaming up with SIGG and selecting the final winners. I think utilizing a crowd sourcing platform such as Talenthouse is going to bring in some incredible original designs while, at the same retime, spreading the mission of the Tony Hawk Foundation. I'm excited to check out all the art that's submitted."
