Students will be shaking hands during the National Amazing Shake 2023. We will have hand sanitizing stations throughout the building for students and judges to use at their discretion.

We also encourage attendees to wash their hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and avoid touching their eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
