  • Kids Open Learning School (Maylands)

Our winning schools were drawn at random and had to be a current SunSmart School to be eligible.

This year we had 153 entries (just about the same number as in 2016). We sincerely thank all schools for promoting the SunSmart message and working towards reducing the incidence of skin cancer. The announcement of our 2017 Win $10 000 for Shade competition coincides with National Skin Cancer Action Week which begins on Sunday, 19th November. This year, we are acknowledging the SunSmart Generation – with today’s children growing up with the SunSmart message and are the most sun savvy generation ever. This is thanks in part to schools like yours adopting the SunSmart message, and for this, we are grateful.

Thank you to all the schools who entered the competition.

As always, please contact us if we can assist in any way. Call (08) 9388 4351 or email sunsmart@cancerwa.asn.au
