For the third consecutive year, Coolibar is sponsoring a School Sun Hat Contest. Five winners will be selected at random to receive hats for their classroom. The contest promotes the SunAWARE acronym to teach simple steps to prevent and detect skin cancers.
Preventative sun safety habits begin in childhood and the classroom is a great place to reinforce those behaviors. Our contest makes School Sun Hats available to classrooms that may not have the resources.
The 2011 contest is now open to students, parents, teachers and supporters. Contest winners will be announced in May – Melanoma Awareness Month. Contest entries will be accepted until May 13, 2011. Winners will be announced on May 19th.
