The Flexible Packaging Association (FPA) has announced the winners of the FPA 2018 Student Flexible Design Challenge. This year’s first place winners were a team of students from Iowa State University. Two students from University of Wisconsin – Stout tied for second place.
FPA’s annual Achievement Awards competition recognizes innovative flexible packaging from across its membership. The industry also believes it is important to encourage and recognize students who are working to become the next generation of packaging designers. For the 2018 competition, FPA received 28 concept outlines from some of the top packaging design programs across the United States. From the concept outlines submitted, 11 were selected to continue to the development phase.
