Clean Hands

The CDC estimates that each year more than 164 million school days are lost due to illness, and that number could be greatly reduced with proper handwashing. As a result, NSF International—a nonprofit public health and safety organization—is challenging school teachers and classroom’s nationwide to stop the spread of germs by lathering-up and showing their cleanest hands through the Scrub Club Clean Hands Game.

Now through April 1, 2011, school teachers, grades K-5, can enter their classroom into a drawing for a chance to win one of five $100.00 gift cards for classroom. Anyone can participate by completing these two simple steps:

Snap a picture of your classroom’s clean hands
Submit your photo and contact information online <---click the link

Once you’ve done that you’ll receive a Scrub Club® Clean Hands Game Certificate and be automatically entered into a drawing for a chance to win one of five $100.00 gift cards for classroom supplies.

Feel free to also visit the Scrub Club website, which offers free lessons to school children on the importance of handwashing.

I'll be entering my class tomorrow!!!

I received an email last week about the program. Tonight, I received a follow up email informally asking me to participate. Interesting to see more involved. I will look into it tomorrow as well! Thanks for posting.
