Paperboard Packaging Alliance Announces 2018 Student Design Challenge Winners

WASHINGTON – The Paperboard Packaging Alliance (PPA) today announced the winners of its 2018 Student Design Challenge. The winning teams presented their designs to executives from the top paperboard packaging manufacturers in North America alongside the winners of the Paperboard Packaging Council’s (PPC) Annual Carton Competition at PPC’s semi-annual meeting in Atlanta, Georgia.

The 2018 challenge was to design packaging for the contents of a subscription box package that enhances the customer experience and can be reused for storage. All submitted designs can be viewed at www.paperboardpackaging.org/university-features/2018-sdc-winners-and-entries.

“Congratulations to the 2018 Student Design Challenge winners,” said American Forest & Paper Association President and CEO Donna Harman. “Two hundred students from 13 universities submitted 58 designs, showing remarkable ingenuity.”

“We hope the Student Design Challenge provides a meaningful contribution to the portfolios of these young designers,” said PPC President Ben Markens. “By connecting employers with the workforce of the future, we can create a stronger, more innovative, and forward-moving industry.”
