PGSF Box Contest 2023

OPEN TO COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY STUDENTS

SHOW YOUR DESIGN SKILLS!

Each year PGSF awards 200+ college-level scholarships ranging in value from $2,000 to $10,000 and we turn to our student community to help us promote these scholarship programs. This year we kick-off our inaugural Box Design contest co-sponsored with Electronics For Imaging (EFI). The winning entrants will receive a $500 check, an award certificate, and will be honored in a national news release, on the PGSF website, and on social media platforms. In addition, the winning box design will be produced on an EFI Nozomi Press.

We will need unique, original box designs for each of the following scholarship programs that will fit the formats provided in the keylines. Keylines can be found HERE

Educators: Please encourage students in your school to enter the PGSF Box Competition either as individuals or as part of a class assignment or project.
