The American Cleaning Institute and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have sponsored the Annual Awards Program for Healthy Schools, Healthy People, It’s a SNAP 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 CDC, ACI, industry and Capitol Hill.

Here’s a dozen award-worthy campaign ideas:

  1. Read to younger students
