Collaborates with Florida Schools to Offer a Fun & Educational Art Contest to Spread Awareness of Sun Safety During Skin Cancer Awareness Month

RDK Kinney Art Contest

The Month of May is nationally recognized as skin cancer awareness month and the first Monday in May is known as Melanoma Monday. In support of this vital public service message, the Richard David Kann (RDK) Melanoma Foundation has collaborated with schools throughout Palm Beach County and Florida to implement a fun and educational contest for students – “The RDK Kinney Art Contest”. The art contest is named in loving memory of former RDK Board Member and supporter, Dr. John Kinney, that was passionately committed about educating the youth on sun safety.

The Richard David Kann Melanoma Foundation’s mission is to save lives through education about the prevention and early detection of skin cancer, especially melanoma. The Foundation’s vision is to educate children throughout the country and give them the skills necessary to make healthy sun safety choices throughout their lives. As the Foundation grows, they will continue to advocate for school districts throughout the country to require sun safety education as part of their curriculum.
