The American Cleaning Institute and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have conducted the Annual Awards Program for Healthy Schools, Healthy People, It’s a SNAP! as a joint initiative since 2003. We encourage students to learn about healthy hand hygiene habits and teach others the importance of handwashing. The top classroom will receive an all-expense paid trip for three to Washington, D.C. or Atlanta, Georgia to meet with leaders from ACI, the cleaning products industry and their elected representatives from Capitol Hill. This program is funded entirely through generous member contributions.

Here’s a dozen award-worthy campaign ideas:

  1. Read to younger students 
  2. Have a video contest 
  3. Produce a school play 
  4. Teach younger students 
  5. Create hands-on activities
