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

“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.
