CINCINNATI – Do you know an awesome school janitor? Then submit your nomination for Cintas Corporation’s (NASDAQ: CTAS) Janitor of the Year contest! There is only one week left to nominate your favorite school janitor for a chance to win a $2,500 cash prize along with $2,500 in Cintas products and services for his or her school – not to mention bragging rights.
