May is National Skin Cancer Awareness Month
with SHADE Poster Contest 2010
Congratulations to our 2010 SunWise with SHADE National
Poster Contest Winner, Kayla from Vermont!
Our 5th grade winner has the message
exactly right! You can enjoy being outdoors in the
sun and still be safe. Thank you to everyone
who participated this year and to those
of you who voted. We know through the voting
portion of this contest that at least 119,000
viewers saw sun safety messages!
Wow! Congratulations to all who submitted
posters this year. We received over 11,000 posters
from 38 states and they were great! It was a difficult
job this year for the judges on April 13th in Washington
DC to pick the state winners.
Register here and you will get an entry
form already filled out with your information that
you can simply print off for each student. You will
also receive occasional reminders and updates about
the poster contest. You will also have the opportunity
to learn more about the SunWise program and request
a free SunWise toolkit.
|The criteria for poster judging
will be based on how well the poster expresses the
sun safety messages in an original,
creative and thoughtful manner. Crayons,
markers and paints make more colorful
posters than do pens and pencils. Posters should
illustrate the messages rather than write
them. Judging will take place in Washington DC on
April 13, 2010. State winners will be announced
on April 16, 2010.
