Voting now megaphone concept vector

SC Johnson Professional kicked off the voting period for its Happy Hands dispenser design contest. The contest invites students to submit soap dispenser artwork highlighting the importance of handwashing in schools. This year, a record number of registrants participated in the contest and the Top 10 designs are available to view and vote on until Feb. 28.

The winners from two categories will receive a $1,000 donation to their school, a $300 gift card, and up to 1,000 1-liter manual soap/sanitizer dispensers featuring the student’s winning design for the school district. The two contest categories include elementary, grades K-5, and middle/high school, grades 6-12.

Each year students submit impressive artwork, and this year was no exception. All of the designs submitted clearly conveyed the importance of hand hygiene to help prevent the spread of germs. The selection process for the Top 10 was very competitive again this year. 

Check out each finalist’s fantastic design and vote on your favorites daily through Feb. 28 at 11:59 p.m. here. The design in each category earning the highest number of votes will win. Winners will be announced in this coming spring.
