The Soap and Detergent Association has teamed up with the National Education Association (NEA) Health Information Network and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to create the National C.L.E.A.N. (Custodial Leaders for Environmental Advocacy Nationwide) Award. The honor will recognize the contributions that custodians make to public health in their schools, communities, and their profession.
“Every day, custodians play a crucial role in public health in more than 90,000 schools in the U.S.,” said Nancy Bock, SDA vice president of education. “This award will pay tribute to their diligence to school cleanliness.”
Applicants for the award will provide information on their worksite, cleaning responsibilities, how they have demonstrated leadership for school cleanliness achievements, evidence of collaboration and how their work has enhanced the image of the custodian. Applications will be evaluated on originality, creativity, ability to sustain results, evidence of teamwork, and program impact.
Custodians must be employed in K-12 schools in U.S. to be eligible. Up to five awards will be presented annually. More info: www.cleaning101.com
