The University of Hawaiʻi Cancer Center and Xcel have teamed up in the fight against skin cancer to host the I Love the Skin I’m In t-shirt design contest.

The winning entry, which must inform and motivate young adults to help prevent skin cancer, will be featured on one of Xcel’s sun protective t-shirts.

With approximately 5,000 new skin cancer cases diagnosed every year, Hawaiʻi’s youth are among those at greatest risk. The I Love the Skin I’m In campaign highlights key prevention methods in reducing exposure to UV radiation by utilizing sunscreen, hats, sunglasses and sun-protective clothing, and by seeking shade.

The contest is open to all Hawaiʻi residents between the ages of 13 and 25. Entries must be received by March 31, 2012.

Contest details can be found on the University of Hawaiʻi Cancer Center website.

    Hello guys, this is a very great initiative. Well done! Sure you have to be protected in the sun. With a sun screen and a uv shirt of coarse. We, MySafeSkin, sell a lot of uv protective clothing in Europe and are always interested in new cool and good looking uv t-shirt designs. You can find us at http://www.mysafeskin.com. Europe is also dealing with the sun burning problems in order to prevent skin cancer.
    Be Sun Safe!
