Deadline Extended for Essay Submissions to the FSDDS Sun Defense Essay Contest Throughout Florida Elementary Schools
Date:3/11/2008

TALLAHASSEE, Fla., March 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Based on overwhelming response, the deadlines for submission of essays to the FSDDS Florida Sun Defense Essay Contest have been extended by two weeks. Sponsored by the Florida Society of Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery (FSDDS), the contest is designed to help educate elementary school age children and parents about the importance of sun safety.

Teachers will then have until April 15, 2008 to choose the winning essay and turn it back into our offices. This means that students could have even more time as long as the elementary school submitted their entry to us by April 15, 2008," stated Zellman.

Cocoa Beach dermatologist Dr. Kristin Smallwood, chair of the FSDDS Public Relations Committee and the Director of the Sun Defense Essay Contest for the FSDDS, explains the need for the extension. "With the contact we have received from elementary schools all across Florida, we knew that we needed to give the teachers more time to submit essays to this first year program. While we have received many essays already, several schools have produced commercials to air in the local schools on the project, we h
