Kids, How Do You Manage Your Asthma? The AAAAI and AAP announce 17th annual poster contest
Date:9/12/2007

MILWAUKEE, Sept. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Children with asthma across the country are encouraged to show their creativity by participating in the 17th annual "Living with Asthma" poster contest sponsored by the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). More than 9 million children in the United States have asthma and it is important for them to understand that asthma shouldn't keep them from participating in activities they enjoy.

The AAAAI and AAP will accept entries for the 17th Annual "Living with Asthma" Poster Contest until December 29, 2007. Children in grades 1 through 8 who have asthma should express their asthma control in a colorful poster to raise asthma awareness, and a chance to win great prizes.

Children can enter their posters individually in three age categories -- 1st and 2nd grade, 3rd through 5th grade and 6th through 8th grade. Entry forms and additional details for entering the contest are available in the Patients & Consumer section of the AAAAI Web site, http://www.aaaai.org or the AAP Section on Allergy and Immunology's home page on the AAP Web site, http://www.aap.org/sections/allergy/child.cfm.

Contestants are encouraged to show their imagination with crayons, markers, paint, etc. on a piece of paper 8 1/2 x 11 but no larger than 16 x 20 inches. Posters should be sent with the official entry form with the following information on a separate piece of paper: child's name, grade in school, mailing address, name of school, school address, principal's name, and the name of the doctor who treats the child's asthma and his/her specialty.

First prize is a $500 U.S. savings bond and a $200 Target gift certificate, second prize a $250 U.S. savings bond and a $100 Target gift certificate, and third prize is a $100 U.S. savings bond and a $50 Target gift certificate. Each winner's school will receive a free supply of asthma education materials, too!

Entries should be sent to: AAAAI/AAP Poster Contest; 555 E. Wells Street, Suite 1100; Milwaukee, WI 53202.
