Starpack Students Award Ceremony 2021
The Starpack Students competition aims to excite the next generation into thinking of packaging as a career. 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. Entrants can win cash prizes, and the chance to gain work placements with leading packaging companies.
The ceremony will kick off with an industry key-note with Mark Shayler. Students will also have the opportunity to network with industry sponsors during a dedicated session, which may open the door for placements and future work opportunities.
