Schools can enter the contest online at through November 30, 2022.

As a majority of families prepare to send their children back to an in-person class setting, hygiene and health precautions should be a top priority.

The 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.

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 eye-catching 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 favorite designs. Voting closes on February 28, 2023 at 11:59 p.m. E.T. See below for contest rules.

The official grand prize winner announcement will be made in spring of 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 1,000 manual soap/sanitizer dispensers featuring their design.
