2022 Design Challenge
This year’s Student Design Challenge asks students to design new paperboard packaging and packaging components for an existing product that is currently packaged primarily in plastic.
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.
