The Starpack Schools & Students competition aims to excite the next generation into thinking of packaging as a career.

Starpack Schools & Students gives young people an early introduction to a diverse global industry that many of us take for granted. The competition is also a great opportunity for the students to showcase their great ideas and solutions directly to an industry looking for rising stars.

Briefs have been launched and can be viewed below.
