BRANTFORD, ON — September 6, 2022 – Markers and crayons and pencils, oh my! Right now, SC Johnson Professional Canada is accepting registrations for the annual Happy Hands dispenser design contest. The contest promotes the importance of hand washing and sanitizing at school by encouraging K-8 students to use their creative skills to design a custom soap/sanitizer dispenser. Schools can enter the contest online at through November 30.

It's time for schools to show off their classrooms’ creativity while spreading the awareness of hand hygiene! The Happy Hands Contest promotes education regarding handwashing to reduce the risk of spreading germs from a young age. As most schools are returning to a normal in-person classroom setting, it’s now more important than ever to make sure children are practicing good hand hygiene. Schools can put their students’ artistic skills to the test and let their imaginations run wild!

The Happy Hands dispenser design contest is open to all K-8 schools in Canadian provinces and territories except Quebec. Each student may submit one dispenser design. There will be two categories Kindergarten-Grade 5 and Grades 6-8. Submissions will be evaluated for visual appeal, overall hand hygiene design, creativity and unique design elements. Designs must be submitted via mail and postmarked by November 30, 2022. Finalists in each category will be announced on February 1, 2023 and the public can then vote for their favourite designs. Voting closes on February 28, 2023 at 11:59 p.m. ET. See below for contest rules.

The official grand prize winner announcement will be made around April 2023. The design with the most votes in each category will receive the top prize, which includes $1,000 for the grand prize winner’s school, a $300 gift card for the winning student, and up to 500 manual soap/sanitizer dispensers featuring the winning design.
