I have talked with lots of students who are excited to submit their posters into the EPA’s Asthma Awareness Poster Contest.  Don’t miss out on this creative and fun learning opportunity!  Enter your poster into the Asthma Awareness Poster Contest by Friday May 10, 2013.  Students in grades 3-8 from Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin are invited to enter.  Possible poster topics can include good asthma control and management, avoiding asthma triggers and many others.

Three winners will be chosen from two age groups (3rd-5th grade and 6th-8th grade).  1st place winners will receive recognition on EPA websites, an award certificate and a prize pack.  2nd place winners will receive recognition on EPA websites, an award certificate and a Planet Earth DVD and 3rd place winners will receive recognition on EPA websites.  Please visit the Asthma Poster Contest’s website to learn how to enter.  Don’t forget to highlight your artistic talent and submit a poster by Friday May 10, 2013!

    This project definitely will add to asthma awareness in children AND adults. Parents of the participants will certainly think more of asthma and its severity. However, how come this is only open to certain states? I have two younger twin sisters and a younger brother who are in the age range who would certainly love to participate in this activity. They love their arts and crafts. However, I live in Louisiana, so they can not. Next project like this you should definitely advocate being open to other states, great project though!
