You asked for it — we listened! We’ve extended the deadline for our Ultimate Inhaler Contest through Sept. 23, 2011 to make sure everyone gets a chance to send in their ideas.

What would your perfect inhaler look like? How would it work? What would you call it?

Tell us all about it with your drawing and description. If your entry’s chosen, we’ll bring you and your family to Washington, DC to share your idea with policymakers, patient advocates and others. And we’ll feature your idea in Allergy & Asthma Today magazine!

–>Click here for the entry form — all entries must be mailed to AANMA (our mailing address is on the form).

Based on originality and ability to express ideas visually and in writing. Entries are grouped and judged by age. Age groups: 5-11, 12-18, 19-adult.


  • For Kids Only – designed for kids on the go
  • Baby, Baby – for infants and toddlers
  • One for All – THE ANSWER for every person, any age
  • Conquering COPD – works for people with low inspiratory flow rates
  • Get a Grip – easy to use for people with arthritis or who have trouble operating an inhaler
  • Wild Card – addresses any currently unmet need

Open to all ages. The top three winners will present their ideas in person to federal health officials, medical professionals, national news media and pharmaceutical executives and developers. Winners and runners-up will be featured in Allergy & Asthma Today magazine. All accepted entries will be posted on AANMA’s website!
