ECL is responsible for coordinating the European Week Against Cancer (EWAC) each year, within the framework of the European Commission’s “European Partnership for Action Against Cancer” (www.epaac.eu).
This EWAC Youth Competition encourages you, the student, to learn how cancer can be prevented, by creating posters and videos that communicate effectively to others your age, on what you can do NOW to prevent cancer LATER in life.
Messages must be related to one or more messages in the European Code Against Cancer (click to download as PDF from the European Commission), and communicated in a way that would help others your same age to understand how to prevent cancer. Posters and videos can be in any European language, but keep in mind that they need to be translatable into all other European languages.
How to Submit:
Judging Criteria – entries will be rated:
1st Prize, each student in team chooses between an IPad , 7” tablet, OR 500€ subsidy to travel to Rome to visit the Italian Cancer League.
2nd Prize, each student in team chooses between an Ipod OR similar tablet.
3rd Prize, each student gets a digital camera.
All participants in the competition will receive a Certificate of Recognition from ECL.
