Global Handwashing Day Contest


As part of the Global Handwashing Day 2023 campaign, the Global Handwashing Partnership is hosting a creative contest that aims to encourage youth (18 years or under) to express their ideas and creativity through a short music video promoting clean hands. The ‘Creating Clean Hands’ Contest invites participants to showcase their talent and passion while amplifying Global Handwashing Day’s core messages.


Prizes will be awarded for each of the two age categories above and will be determined by a set of expert judges. Winners from each age category will receive a gift card:

  • 1st place: 365 USD (for the number of days we should focus on hand hygiene)
  • 2nd place: 195 USD (for the number of countries that should focus on hand hygiene)
  • Honorable mention: 20 USD (for the amount of seconds you should wash your hands)

This creative contest is open to all individuals up to 18 years of age, with a limit of one video entry per person. The contest will have two age categories:

  • 14 to 18 years of age
