Tennant Starts Search for Superhero Custodians

September 13, 2022 Tennant Starts Search for Superhero Custodians

Tennant Co. is now accepting nominations for its fourth-annual Custodians Are Key recognition program.

First launched in September 2019, the annual program recognizes the work K–12 custodians are doing in educational facilities across the United States. This year’s campaign is themed “Super Custodian” and serves as a spotlight of all the real superheroes who keep schools safe, clean, and healthy. Parents, teachers, and school administrators are invited to nominate custodians for their efforts to provide students with a healthy and safe educational environment through November 15. Tennant will then choose 12 finalists, who will each receive a US$500 gift card. The grand prize winner will be selected in May 2023 and receives a prize valued at $5,000 while his or her school receives $10,000.

“We launched the Custodians Are Key program in 2019 to celebrate the unsung heroes who make our schools better by going above and beyond their daily job duties, showing students and staff how much they care,” said Rusty Zay, Tennant chief commercial officer. “We had no idea that a global pandemic would make the jobs they do even more critical to the health and safety of the teachers and students they serve. It is our honor to celebrate these superheroes; their work continues to be critically important, and we are grateful for their dedication.”
