SC Johnson Professional revealed the finalists of this year’s Happy Hands dispenser design contest, which promotes the importance of hand washing and sanitizing at school. 

From a germ-busting soap dispenser to a rocket ship “blasting off” germs into space, the public can now choose their favorite soap dispenser design by K-12 students across the U.S.

“Each design showcased an incredible amount of creativity, artistic talent and imagination,” said Mike Flagg, head of SC Johnson Professional’s North American business. “There’s no question that hand hygiene is an important measure for preventing the spread of germs. The Happy Hands contest makes educating and promoting clean hands at school more memorable and engaging for all students.”
