ASTHMA AWARENESS POSTER CONTEST
EPA would like to invite 3rd-8th graders in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin to participate in the Asthma Awareness Poster Contest.
The purpose of the poster contest is to promote asthma awareness among children, parents and school faculty. Students can show what they know about this chronic condition that affects more than 25 million Americans.
Students will create a drawing or painting that illustrates different aspects of the condition. Possible poster topics include, but aren’t limited to: good asthma control and management, avoiding asthma triggers, physical activity and asthma, asthma and the environment, and asthma medication. Entries must be no larger than 11x17 and must be flat (i.e., no 3-dimensional projects).
There will be two categories: 3rd-5th grade and 6th-8th grade. All participants will receive a certificate of recognition for participating. Winners will be chosen based on the most creative and accurate depictions of asthma awareness as judged by EPA experts. 1st place winners in each category will receive recognition on EPA websites, an Award Certificate and a prize pack; 2nd place winners in each category will receive recognition on EPA websites, an Award Certificate and a Planet Earth DVD set; and 3rd place winners in each category will receive recognition on EPA’s website.
