Welcome to SNAP - a hands-on initiative for middle schools that's designed to help keep students in school and learning by improving overall health through promoting clean hands. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that handwashing is the most important thing you can do to keep from getting sick (CDC, http://www.cdc.gov/ounceofprevention). Schools can use the SNAP program to increase student and staff hand cleaning and help them stay healthy.

SNAP offers a FREE educational poster-toolkit that
Makes it easy to incorporate clean-hands
education into middle school curricula.
Fosters teamwork.
Provides new ideas that support
national education standards.

Plus…It gives student teams a chance
to gain national recognition!

The SNAP Toolkit has been piloted in schools in more than 40 states and Canada. Now, you can get your school involved too - by downloading the SNAP Toolkit today.
