2021 Design Challenge
This year’s Student Design Challenge asks students to develop a 100% paper-based,
sustainable packaging solution for a community relief organization.
Each year, the Paperboard Packaging Alliance (PPA) challenges students in leading sustainable packaging design programs to show off the design skills, innovative capacity and savvy in meeting real-world customer needs and marketing scenarios.
