Coppertone® wants to Protect What Matters Most – YOU and your skin by empowering young leaders of today to change the way we think about sun protection.

By providing 4‑H’ers with the sun safety tools they need to protect themselves, Coppertone® hopes to help 4‑H’ers and their communities realize the importance of sun safety every day – not just at the beach or pool.

This April, the 4‑H community has the chance to show off their creativity with the Sun Smarts Challenge.
