Cintas Announces 2024 Custodian of the Year Contest

January 18, 2024

Cintas Corp. is now accepting submissions for its annual Custodian of the Year contest.

Now in its 11th year, the contest calls for elementary, middle, high-school, and college students, in addition to staff, to submit a short essay by February 9 describing why their school’s custodian deserves the award. Cintas will announce 10 finalists on March 5, at which time online voting for the winning custodian will commence on the company’s website through April 12. The finalist receiving the most votes will be named Custodian of the Year later this spring. 

“Custodians are the force behind a clean, safe, and welcoming space for students to learn and succeed,” said Christiny Betsch, Cintas marketing manager. “For the last 10 years, we’ve had the honor of celebrating one-of-a-kind custodians with remarkable stories. We’re ecstatic to honor custodians once again in our 11th year of this contest.”

The winning custodian will receive US$10,000 and an additional $5,000 in Rubbermaid Commercial Products and Cintas products for his/her school. The winner’s school will also receive a facility assessment and consulting package from ISSA and Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS) Advanced by GBAC certification, valued at $20,000.

The nine runners-up will each receive $1,000 from Cintas, a cleaning supply package from Rubbermaid, and free tuition to one ISSA Cleaning Management Institute (CMI) virtual training event, valued at up to $1,500. In addition, the top three finalists will receive an all-expense paid trip for two to the ISSA Show North America 2024 in Las Vegas in November, where they’ll be recognized for their accomplishments.

“It’s important to show appreciation to school custodians for the important work they do in establishing healthy learning environments,” said ISSA Executive Director John Barrett. “ISSA is proud to take part in this contest and looks forward to celebrating outstanding custodians across the U.S.”
