In their continued support of grassroots skateboarding, Red Bull is bringing a preeminent amateur contest series to America’s heartland this summer. Dubbed “Cornerstone” as a nod to the region’s indoor skate parks that help keep the fabric of daily skateboarding intact through harsh winters, the series invites top skaters from the Midwest to qualifier events in Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, and Minnesota. The top male and female qualifiers at each stop will earn a coveted spot at the Red Bull Cornerstone Final in Minneapolis on October 6. As a bonus, a best trick session will go down during the finals on select Red Bull features, designed by Red Bull athletes, that will allow the skaters to win the obstacle being skated. Those features will be sent to each winner’s local park to capture the triumph of the skater and share back with his/her local skate community. The prize purse at each qualifier event is $1,500, while competitors who make it to the Final event on October 6 will be competing for a total of $9,000. All together that’s $15,000 up for grabs!
