TWS 50/50 Grand Prize Winner is....

Dec 14th, 2016 / Posted By: Shawn

Congratulations to Will Gomez from Miami, Florida, for winning this year’s Transworld 50/50 video contest presented by Zumiez! Our six regional finalists all came through with bangers this year making the final round extremely close. But just like last year, the 2016 winner was determined by an audience vote and Will came out on top as the fan favorite. From not even thinking he’d make it to the finals to taking the entire contest, you killed it Will! Congrats.

Will and a friend will be attending the World Premiere of our 28th video, Riddles in Mathematics, he’ll get a Check Out in an upcoming issue of TWS, a $500 Zumiez shopping spree, Gear for a Year from our sponsors (Independent Trucks, Bones Wheels, Plan B, Matix, and DC Shoes), and will receive tons of coverage and exposure over the next few months. He’ll also be tasked to film a new video part for us that will release on twskate.com in 2017!

Side note: Will was also our 2nd Place winner at this year’s NYC C.U.T. stop at McCarren Skatepark.

Thanks to everyone who participated in the contest, voted, shared, commented, hated—whatever! We’ll see you all in 2017. Get caught up to speed with everything right here #TWS5050.
