During Cervical Screening Awareness Week in June 2010, Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust launched the first ever Cervical Screening Awards aiming to find the best local cervical screening awareness campaign.
Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust believes it is crucial to be more targeted with cervical screening awareness and we know that there is fantastic, high-quality work doing just that, making a real difference to women in local communities. We wanted to reward that as well as highlight it, so others could take it back to their own part of the country.
The winners of the 2010 Awards are featured below. We passionately believe that developing creative and targeted cervical screening education campaigns can make a real difference and that this new and exciting competition provides a great opportunity to learn from each other.
