Join Us At The 10th Anniversary Student Design Challenge Luncheon

You are invited to attend the upcoming Student Design Challenge (SDC) awards luncheon at PACK EXPO in Chicago!

Since 2004, the Paperboard Packaging Alliance has provided college and university packaging and design students the opportunity to design innovative paperboard packaging through the organization’s SDC.

This year marks SDC’s 10th anniversary and, as always, the competition was fierce! Judges were thoroughly impressed with the 59 entries from 12 packaging and design schools across the nation

The 2014 SDC participants and first, second and third place award winners will be honored at the luncheon. Luncheon participants will have the opportunity to vote for a “People's Choice Award,” be eligible for door prizes and be the first to learn about the 2015 SDC scenario.

Participants will also have the chance to meet this year’s guest judge, Jennifer Wolverton. Ms. Wolverton is a packaging engineer for Unilever, and according to Unilever, the company is the top consumer goods employer of choice among students in 26 countries. She will present the awards to the winning teams and share invaluable industry expertise. For more information about Ms. Wolverton as well as the rest of the 2014 SDC judges, visit the “Meet the Judges” page.

The luncheon will be held on Monday, Nov. 3 at 12:00 p.m. (noon) CT in meeting room E353bc on the third level of the Lakeside building at the McCormick Place Chicago.

We hope to see you at the luncheon! To RSVP, please contact Akilah Robin at
