Paperboard Packaging Alliance Announces 2019 Student Design Challenge Winners

WASHINGTON – The Paperboard Packaging Alliance (PPA) announced the winners of its 2019 Student Design Challenge, a competition designed to foster awareness and appreciation of paperboard packaging with university educators and the next generation of packaging design decision-makers. The winning teams presented their designs to executives from top North American paperboard packaging manufacturers at the Paperboard Packaging Council’s (PPC) annual fall meeting in Minneapolis, Minn.

Students were challenged to design packaging for a gaming system that enhances the unboxing experience and can be used while playing the game. Winners were chosen by a team of paperboard packaging industry professionals who rated submissions based on their response to the competition scenario, innovative structural and graphic design, functionality, and the quality of the finished product. All submitted designs can be viewed on the PPA Website.

“The PPA Student Design Challenge provides students an invaluable, real-world product development experience that results in a tangible package to add to their professional portfolio,” said American Forest & Paper Association President and CEO Heidi Brock. “It is energizing to see young designers contributing to paperboard packaging innovations through teamwork, determination and creativity.”

“The Student Design Challenge offers tremendous opportunities for participants to hone their design skills, perfect a product and network with top industry executives,” said Ben Markens, PPC President. “PPC strives to nurture the next generation of packaging professionals, and we are delighted to support the Challenge and all it has to offer.”

Considering the complexity of the topic, students often find it hard to put it all together while writing an academic paper. This is when choosing the economics homework help works out well for their academic career.
