Inspiring results were achieved by more than 2,000 students from over 200 schools across the country who applied from September 15 to November 12 with remarkably creative drawings and collages on the theme “How I beat germs at home or at school “.

The children from 1st to 4th grade believed that the white sheet could hold all their dreams for a more beautiful and clean-looking environment at school and at home in one place.

The "Hygiene for Excellence" competition is being held for the third year as part of Domestos' social commitment in Bulgarian schools.The campaign is aimed at improving hygienic and sanitary conditions in schools and building good hygiene habits among the youngest students.


The main helper of the children was Captain Hygiene, whose mission was to visit the maximum number of educational institutions and through the game method - in a fun and intriguing way to meet the students face to face with good hygiene habits. The goal of Domestos was to instill in children an attitude that would lead to excellent results. Or to put it another way – hygiene for excellent students.


Over 630 drawings and collages brightened the cleanschool.bg campaign site. The winners of the competition were announced as three schools, chosen as follows: two of the projects that collected the most votes from the likes of the site www.cleanschool.bg, and one project determined by a jury composed of: Radostina Nikolova /writer, children's books/, Nusha Royanova /illustrator, children's books/, Ralitsa Naydenova /writer and illustrator, children's books/, Tatiana Grigorova /chief editor, National Geographic Kids Bulgaria/ and Nikol Bogdanova /marketing, Unilever/.


The three winning schools will receive professional cleaning and renovation of the toilets in the school buildings.

All schools in the top ten with the most votes collected from the site will receive products from Domestos and Cif, enough to keep them clean for a whole year. And each child from the classes that participated in the campaign will receive an individual gift.


On November 19, the awarded 10 drawings and collages were presented at a special exhibition in Serdika Center, Sofia. At the opening of the exhibition, all those present met the children's favorite superhero - Captain Hygiene. He had prepared a series of educational games to show how the fight against germs was most successfully waged.
