Nominations for this years's Asthma Young Achievers Award close on Friday August 10.

The award, in its fourth year, acknowledges Hamilton primary and intermediate-aged children who despite a respiratory condition do well in any sphere — academic, sport, social or community activities.

Nominations for the 2018 award have come from students of various backgrounds but all share asthma or a respiratory condition.

Thanks to a bequest from Leigh and Betty Dunbar, the Waikato Asthma and Respiratory
Trust offers an annual prize of a $200 voucher and keepsake trophy to the winner, while the student's school receives the Leigh and Betty Dunbar Young Asthma Achievers Trophy.
