FPA Awards 2022 Student Flexible Packaging Design Winners

The Flexible Packaging Association (FPA) has announced the winners of the FPA 2022 Student Flexible Packaging Design Challenge. 

This year’s first and second place winners were teams of students from the University of Wisconsin – Stout under the direction of Gary Borges, lecturer. There was also one honorable mention awarded for the 2022 competition.

FPA’s annual Achievement Awards competition recognizes innovative flexible packaging from across its membership. 

The FPA’s Emerging Leadership Council (ELC) oversees the Student Flexible Packaging Design Challenge and judged this year’s competition. 

The first-place winning team is comprised of Ben Boie, Aria Elfering, Payton Klaslo, Aaron Kurschner, and Connor Walechka from the University of Wisconsin – Stout for their “Pistachio Pal” package. 

A packaging concept for microwaveable ramen was the second place winner, also a team of students from the University of Wisconsin – Stout. Ethan Myers, Riley Runnels, Hayden Zachgo, and Hannah Zastrow, also under the direction of Gary Borges, designed a flexible packaging solution that spoke to consumers on the go. 

For the 2022 competition, FPA received 39 concept outlines from some of the top packaging design programs across the United States. From the concept outlines submitted, 17 were selected to continue to the development phase.
