High School Art Contest

An annual art contest, held in conjunction with our annual Clean Air Awards, for students in grades 9-12 in public, private or home schools.

Teens and Asthma

We offer a number of unpaid internships year-round. Interns should have completed their first year of studies at a college or university. A basic understanding of environmental and health issues is a plus. Interns may receive a small stipend at the end of their internship, unless they are receiving academic credit. We ask that interns work a minimum of 10 hours a week and they normally last 3 to 6 months, based on availability.
