Polls are open for third-annual 'Happy Hands' contest
The finalists have been selected and now it's up to you to choose a winner! Voting for SC Johnson Professional's third-annual Happy Hands dispenser design contest is now open. The student-drawn designs are on display at www.debhappyhands.com and open for voting through February 28th.
The Happy Hands contest promotes the importance of handwashing at schools by encouraging K-12 students to use their creative skills and imagination to design a custom soap/sanitiser dispenser.
During the winter months when cold, flu and gastrointestinal outbreaks are more frequent, it's even more important to encourage frequent handwashing and the contest is a fun way to remind students about the importance of proper handwashing and the role hand hygiene plays in helping prevent the spread of germs.
Selected based on visual appeal, overall hand hygiene design, creativity and unique design elements, the 2019 Happy Hands contest finalists include:
