About the Student Design Challenge


PPA is a proud supporter of packaging students and programs across North America, donating thousands of dollars in scholarships, materials and classroom resources each year through our Student Design Challenge.

PPA sponsored its first Student Design Challenge in 2004. The Challenge is designed to foster awareness and appreciation of paperboard packaging with university educators and the next generation of packaging design decision-makers. 

We are always looking to recruit new schools to participate in the Student Design Challenge. By participating, your school will be eligible to receive classroom materials, student scholarships and the ability to compete amongst top packaging & design schools across the country.
