Public Education Award

The Screen Me™ Sun Aware™ Camp Program

was chosen by the Canadian Dermatology Association as the recipient of their 2017 Public Education Award in the Not-for-Profit category. The committee was impressed with the Screen Me™ Sun Aware™ Camp program as it not only reaches a significant number of children, but also teaches young campers good sun safety habits, which they will then carry into adulthood. In 2016, there were 63 camps registered, 800 staff who completed sun safety training, and over 70,000 youth who learned sun safe behaviours. We expect the program to continue growing in 2017.
