“We are so happy to be a part of making awareness to the great need to wash your hands to keep everyone safe,” said Clemmie’s mom Ms. Thomas.  

According to Clemmie’s teacher, Shirley Lee, his design spoke to the concept of the contest, is relatable, and the colorful and playful design appealing to students.

“Clemmie is a great collaborator, he’s enthusiastic about making real world connections,” Lee said. “I think SC Jonhson found a unique way to help promote the importance of hand washing at school; the Happy Hands contest allows a student to use their imagination as well as their creative skills to show the importance of hand washing.”
