New Indy Ivex Specialty Paper is trying something new this year! We are hosting our very first Specialty Paper Design Challenge. This challenge allows college students from all over the country to work together at their University in small teams (up to five students per team) to design a creative and unique way to use our paper in a market that values our unique abilities around crepe, color and coating. The paper can use any of these capabilities in the design and should have a functional use in a real-world market that values technology, quality and sustainability.
We are reaching out to college students who study any type of paper manufacturing, engineering, or design, but all majors are welcome! There will be cash prizes for the winners of this contest. First prize will take home $3,000 and second prize will win $1,500! In addition to prize money, students will gain real-world experience and access to technical expertise within Ivex.
The final submission of the project isn’t until May 1st, 2017, but the deadline to register is at 11:59PM CT on Monday, November 21st, so register soon! More details on the schedule of the challenge can be found here. For more information on the challenge, visit our Design Challenge site OR send us a quick email and we will get back you quickly!
