Students from the University of Wisconsin-Stout and students from California Polytechnic State University are winners in the 2016 Student Flexible Packaging Design Challenge. The competition is part of the 60th Annual Flexible Packaging Achievement Awards. The top student packages emphasize consumer convenience.
First place went to the “Easy Snack—Celery and Peanut Butter on the Go.” Mallory Geigle, Tabitha Harnack and Hannah Newman are the student team from Stout that developed the concept. The flexible package combines two compartments: One holds peanut butter, and the other holds celery sticks. No need for utensils for a snack.
