Three Auburn students have been selected as finalists in the nationwide SC Johnson Professional Happy Hands dispenser design contest.

Joel, a second-grader; Jose, a third-grader; and Carmen, a fifth-grader, all students at Pioneer Elementary School, are competing for the top prize: a $300 gift card, a $750 school donation and up to 500 dispensers featuring their winning design for use at their school.

The winner is selected based on the number of online votes. Voting is now open and ends Feb. 28.

The student-drawn designs are on display at debhappyhands.com.

The Happy Hands contest promotes the importance of handwashing at schools by encouraging K-12 students to use their creative skills and imagination to design a custom soap/sanitizer dispenser.
