Three classmates from the Litchfield High School Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America Chapter in Litchfield, MN, were recently awarded the 2017 “Healthy Schools, Healthy People: It’s a SNAP!” national award for their promotion of hand washing among their fellow students.
The students were honored for developing the “Healthy Holidays,” campaign and the “Soap, Scrub, Sing, Rinse, and Dry,” regimen which educated and reminded students on the importance of hand washing.
The “Healthy Schools, Healthy People: It’s a Snap! (School Network for Absenteeism Prevention)” program is a joint initiative by the American Cleaning Institute and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention to promote hand washing among students.
The three students will be sent on an all-expenses paid trip to Washington, D.C. to receive the award.
