2018/2019 Happy Hands Finalists Announced!

Happy Hands

We are excited to announce the finalists for the 2018/209 SC Johnson Professional Happy Hands Contest! 

Firstly, we would like to thank all the Teachers and Students who participated in this year's contest. We received hundreds of unique designs from students in classes across the country ranging colourful germ monsters to creative comics promoting hand hygiene at schools.

It was a difficult process to narrow down the designs to just 5 from each category, but all of us here at SC Johnson Professional Canada are excited to reveal the finalists in our third annual Happy Hands contest!

“Each year we receive more imaginative designs, making it more difficult to select only five in each category,” said Patrick Boshell, Marketing Director Canada, Deb Group. “The creativity that the students implemented into each design shows us that hand washing can be fun and memorable.”

Incorporating detailed drawings and bright, bold colors, each finalist design illustrates the important role hand washing plays in keeping everyone at school healthy.

Voting on the student-drawn designs in the K-5 and Gr. 6-8 categories is on now through February 15, 2019 at This year’s Happy Hands contest finalists are:
