Applications close 13 June 2014

Intended Audience: Secondary School educators; high schools, district high schools and colleges

Secondary schools can apply for a grant of up to $25,000 from Cancer Council Australia to purchase shade for their school - funded by the Eftpos Giveback Campaign.

Adolescents are at risk of skin damage during school hours particularly as they are resistant to sun protection measures.

Damage received during adolescence greatly contributes to risk of skin cancer later in life - providing adequate shade is a proven strategy for this age group.
