Design Contest Encouraging Hand Hygiene

Healthy schools and happy students go hand in hand! That’s why Deb is giving schools the tools to make hand hygiene fun with Deb’s Annual Happy Hands Contest. K–12 schools now have the opportunity to educate students about the importance of hand washing, while also allowing them to express their artistic sides through the creation of an original design for a Deb dispenser. Schools can win too. The schools with the most popular designs will receive a $500 donation from Deb and free custom dispensers for their school. This year Deb is giving back with Design for Donation. For each dispenser design submitted for the Happy Hands Contest, Deb will donate $2 to Helping Houston Rebuild to aid schools rebuilding after Hurricane Harvey.

Deadline: November 30, 2017, for student designs
