Instructables and Converse are having a contest to see who can go back to school in the most style. From the site:

School starts soon, and everyone starts out with the same basic necessities – clothes, a backpack, school supplies, maybe a computer, and a boring dorm or bedroom. Converse wants to know: how do you take something standard-issue, and make it unique?

You like to express yourself creatively, and stand out of the crowd. Show us how you customize your room, your clothes, your electronics gear – anything, so long as you’ve given it your own personal style. Here’s your chance to show off your own custom creation by sharing it on Instructables, and win some awesome Converse gear in the process!
