BRANTFORD, ON – May 13, 2022 – SC Johnson Professional today announced the winners of this year’s Happy Hands dispenser design contest, which promotes the importance of handwashing and sanitizing at school. The winner in the elementary school (K-5) category is Navsher B., a grade 2 student at Meadowlands Public School in Nepean, ON and the winner in the middle school (6-8) category is Ella B., a grade 6 student at Sacred Heart Catholic School in Marmora, ON.
Both students will receive a $300 general-use gift card. Each of their schools will receive $1,000 for and up to 500 manual soap/sanitizer dispensers, featuring each respective student’s winning design.
“Our school community was thrilled to see Ella’s design in the Top 10, and we’re so happy for her that she’s the winner in her category,” said Anna Young, Principal, Sacred Heart Catholic School “This contest was a lot of fun for all of us at Sacred Heart to participate in to encourage proper handwashing.”
This year, SC Johnson Professional received a record number of design submissions. Each design was initially evaluated for visual appeal, overall design, unique design elements and creativity. Five finalists in both grade level categories were chosen, and over 10,000 digital votes were cast in this year’s contest throughout the month of February.
Laurie Pilon, Principal, Meadowlands P.S. added: “We had two students whose designs made the Top 10, and the school had a lot of fun with drumming up votes. This contest was a great way to see how creative our students are and we’re so happy for Navsher’s win.”
“It’s always wonderful to see schools rally around each of the students’ designs and gain support from their communities as well,” said Mike Flagg, head of SC Johnson Professional’s North American business. “This contest is a fantastic way to get students of all ages excited about handwashing and understanding that good hand hygiene can be fun!”
