Win £5,000 for your school by promoting sun safety

Schools are being encouraged to share photos of their pupils staying safe in the sun for the chance to win £5,000 to spend on school trips.

The Sun Ready Photo Challenge, run by Boots, is encouraging schools to share photos of their students wearing sunglasses, summer hats or doused in sun cream to win the prize money, with four runners up receiving £500 and a set of school bibs for sports day.

Alongside the competition, a series of free curriculum-linked teaching resources have also been released for primary and secondary schools, educating youngsters on the dangers of the sun through videos, lesson plans and homework activities.

“We know how important it is for children to cover up in the sunshine while they explore the great outdoors. By taking part, they have the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge on how to stay safe in the sun,” said Jenny Kesterton, a brand manager for Boots Soltan.

The deadline for competition entries is June 8. To enter, click here
