The 2011 Coolibar School Sun Hat Contest had over 750 entries from students, teachers, PTA members, and nonprofit organizations from across the US. We even had a few entries from Australia! Thanks to the efforts of the five lucky winners, entire classrooms of students will be able to safely enjoy the summer sun, and stay well protected beneath their new Coolibar Sun Hats!
On May 20, 2011, the Stay Out of the Sun Run (SOSR) Foundation held their annual walk/race in Rochester, MN that promotes awareness of the dangers of sun exposure and supports melanoma research and education. All proceeds from the SOSR are donated to the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center for melanoma research and education. Coolibar was there to participate in this event for the 5th year in a row.

Back to School with Style!
This Pebble Beach, California elementary school wanted to incorporate sun hats to their school uniform. They ordered 250 of the Coolibar Reversible Bucket Hat.
The hats were issued to the entire student body at the start of the school year, with the rule that all students must wear their sun hat while outdoors to protect against the California sun.
