Hairy scary bid to educate schools on nits

NITS. It's the word every parent dreads - and every kid grows to fear.

But an awareness campaign by Aussie company NitWits could net Fraser Coast schools $1000 for their school libraries.

To take part in No Nits November, students are asked to put on a wacky hairstyle and share a photo of it online, as part of a push to combat the spread of head lice.

Urangan State High School's head of marketing department and teacher Andrea Powell hoped many children would take part in this competition.

"It's a nice fun way to promote a topic that's taboo especially in high schools," Ms Powell said.
