CHARLOTTE, N.C. — August 31, 2021 – Pencils, crayons, paintbrushes – oh my! Registration for SC Johnson Professional's 2021/2022 Happy Hands dispenser design contest is now open. The contest encourages K-12 students to use their creativity to design a custom soap/sanitizer dispenser to promote the importance of handwashing and sanitizing at school. Schools can enter the contest online at https://happyhands.scjp.com now through November 30, 2021.
"Learning about the importance of having clean hands is essential in school settings," said Mike Flagg, head of SC Johnson Professional's North American business. "Each year, we use Happy Hands as a way to educate students about handwashing habits and reducing the spread of germs in a lighthearted and artistic way."
The Happy Hands dispenser design contest is open to all K-12 public or private school institutions in the 50 United States and the District of Columbia. Each student may submit one dispenser design. The first 50 teachers to submit 15 or more student designs will receive a prize basket that includes a variety of SC Johnson® products to keep classrooms and students clean and organized.
There will be two categories for the contest: elementary (grades K-5) and middle/high school (grades 6-12). Submissions will be evaluated for visual appeal, overall hand hygiene design, creativity and unique design elements. The “draw-dropping” designs must be submitted via mail and postmarked by November 30, 2021. Finalists in each category will be announced on February 1, 2022, and the public can then vote for their favorite designs. Voting closes on February 28, 2022 at 11:59 p.m. E.T. See below for contest rules.
The official grand prize winner announcement will be made in April 2022. The design with the most votes in each category will receive the top prize, which includes $1,000 for the two grand prize winners' school, a $300 gift card for each student, and up to 1,000 manual soap/sanitizer dispensers featuring their winning design.
