WATEFORD, ON. — Sept. 4, 2018 – SC Johnson Professional is calling all young and aspiring artists to register for its annual Happy Hands dispenser design contest. The contest promotes the importance of hand washing at school by encouraging students to use their creative skills and imagination to design a custom Deb dispenser. Schools can enter the contest online at www.debgroup.com/ca/happy-hands now through November 30, 2018.
“After last year’s difficult cold and flu season, it’s especially important to encourage students to wash their hands regularly throughout the school day,” said Patrick Boshell, Marketing Director Canada, SC Johnson Professional. “Over the last three years, we’ve received some incredible artwork focused on hand hygiene. We look forward to seeing fresh new talent in this year’s submissions!”
