Canadian Dermatology Association conducts contest
The Ottawa-based Canadian Dermatology Association has begun a third annual contest promotion called "Sun. Camera. Action." The promotion, aimed primarily at young people, is intended to raise awareness of sun safety and the prevention of skin cancer. Consumers between the ages of 13 and 18 can enter by submitting a short video about sun safety as part of National Sun Awareness Week. Submissions will be open until June 20. The videos will be posted on the association's Facebook page for public voting. A judging panel will then select a winner from among the most highly-rated videos.
"Getting young people involved in awareness efforts for sun safety is essential," said Cheryl Rosen, national chair of the association's sun awareness program. "This is a great opportunity for teens to get really creative and spread the word about the dangers of excessive UV exposure and the effects it can have on your health later in life."
