WATEFORD, Ontario--()--From colourful germ monsters to creative comics, vote now for your favourite design! Deb Canada today revealed the finalists in its second annual Happy Hands contest, which promotes hand hygiene at schools. The public can view the student-drawn designs and vote for their favourite finalist now through February 15 at https://www.debgroup.com/ca/happy-hands.

“We received hundreds of amazing designs, so it was hard to select only five in each category,” said Patrick Boshell, Marketing Director Canada, Deb Group. “The creativity that the students implemented into each design shows us that hand washing can be fun and memorable.”

Incorporating detailed drawings and bright, bold colors, each finalist design illustrates the important role hand washing plays in keeping everyone at school healthy. The 2018 Happy Hands contest finalists include:
