Dettol Announces Second Edition Of Hygiene Olympiad

Dettol Hygiene Olympiad 2.0 expands to all 28 states & 8 Union territories across India, reaching over 30 million children

Reckitt announced the second edition of the Dettol Hygiene Olympiad. Aimed at building awareness around the importance hygiene plays in the prevention of illnesses among children, this unique initiative offers an interactive platform for children to learn about hygiene and healthy habits.  

The Olympiad will span all 28 states and 8 union territories across the country, reaching over 30 million children. The initiative will also engage with students in 2500 gurukuls and other religious education schools, incorporating Sanskrit translations to ensure accessibility to a diverse audience. 

This will ensure that children from every corner of India understand the best practices of handwashing and embrace concepts of hygiene and health in their daily lives. A natural extension to the Dettol School Hygiene Curriculum, the initiative further cements Reckitt’s belief that addressing hygiene gaps will be imperative in India’s journey to better health. 

Dettol Hygiene Olympiad 2.0 is supported by over 100 partners which include, Plan India, MAMTA HIMC, Gramalaya, Jagran Pehel, AJYS, FICCI ISC, ASSOCHAM Foundation, Apollo Total Health, SARDS, and CARPED, among others. The offline examination is scheduled from September 4 to September 15, providing children aged 6 to 16 years an impetus to explore the nexus between hygiene, health, and safeguarding their family. One winner will be announced from each state and union territory and select winners will be felicitated in person at the launch of Dettol Banega Swasth India Season 10.
