The FPA 2018 Student Flexible Packaging Design Challenge is underway. In its 14th year, the FPA Student Flexible Packaging Design Challenge recognizes and honors flexible packaging solutions developed by students. The Challenge for students is to develop a flexible package solution that addresses a packaging issue, such as consumer convenience or the protection of food. The package should advance the use of flexible packaging; make an improvement over an existing flexible package; convert a non-flexible package into a flexible package; package a new product; or package a product that is not currently available in flexible packaging.
Students currently enrolled in a package engineering, design, food science, or related discipline may enter the competition. The student, or team of students, who develops the winning entry will receive $1,000 and $500 for second place.
The Challenge rules, instructions, and criteria are described in the FPA Student Flexible Packaging Design Challenge Call for Entries found on the FPA website, www.flexpack.org. The deadline for Concept Outlines is September 15, 2017.
