Biographical / Historical
Lynsie Gibson (graduated 2010) and Zachary Mendoza (graduated 2011), Packaging Science Students from College of Applied Science and Technology, won first place for their entry Sustainable Paperboard Packaging Innovation in the 2009 Student Design Challenge at the Pack Expo national conference and exhibition in Las Vegas. The design challenge is sponsored by the Paperboard Packaging Alliance. The competition is part of the annual international Pack Expo, a conference for packaging and processing professionals.
According to the students: "The project required that students create a package design that was marketable, something the consumers would reuse for storage and sustainable ... We decided that we wanted our design to stand out on the shelf, but we also wanted it to take up little space when the consumer stored it. So, we created a package that would convert from a 3-D, triangular design to a small simple DVD booklet."
