March is the American Cancer Society's Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. To help raise awareness for colorectal cancer, and to encourage screening and prevention, the North Dakota Cancer Coalition (NDCC) is sponsoring a "Turn North Dakota Blue for Colorectal Cancer Awareness" photo contest.

Health providers, area businesses, and other organizations are being asked to submit a photo of their members wearing blue to the Coalition by the end of March. One winning image will be selected from each submission category (hospitals, nonprofits, businesses, educational institutions, etc.) by a panel of NDCC judges.

To that end, a photo shoot has been scheduled at the Grand Staircase in the SMHS building in Grand Forks for 10:30 a.m. on Friday, March 23.

Faculty/staff/students interested in being part of the shot should arrive at the staircase by 10:30 wearing BLUE for colorectal cancer awareness.
