SBPS Recognizes Childhood Cancer Awareness Month with Week of Activities

Scottsbluff Public Schools is proud to announce its commitment to raising awareness for Childhood Cancer throughout the month of September, particularly during the week of September 25-29. Childhood Cancer Awareness Month is a time dedicated to shining a spotlight on the children and families affected by this devastating disease and raising funds for research and support.


During this week, SBPS has planned a series of activities to engage our school community and inspire support for children battling cancer. These activities include:

Daily Facts:  Daily Childhood Cancer Awareness facts will be shared on SBPS Social Media Channels and school newsletters.

Wear Gold Wednesday (September 27): Students, teachers, and staff at all schools are encouraged to wear gold, the official color of Childhood Cancer Awareness, to show their solidarity with those in our school community battling childhood cancer.

Tackling Childhood Cancer(September 29):  The SHS Football Team will partner with the Team Ashtyn Foundation for this Annual event at Friday’s Football Game vs. Waverly.  A variety of activities will take place including:

  • Local families affected by Childhood Cancer will speak at halftime
  • SHS HOSA Members will be handing out 100 plastic orange footballs with the Team Ashtyn Foundation logo. They will also be handing out orange and gold balloons, with names of local children battling cancer, to be released after the first touchdown is scored.
  • Gold vinyl ribbons will be worn on the helmets of both teams
  • Tackle Childhood Cancer and Bearcat Football Shirts will be sold at the gate 
  • There will be a 50/50 raffle with the winner drawn at halftime.

We invite our entire school community to participate in these activities and show their support for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Together, we can bring hope, healing, and awareness to this important cause.
