Two Teams Placed at Packaging Challenge 

Our students also won two top awards in the 2018 Ameristar contest hosted by the Institute of Packaging Professionals. Cal Poly earned second and third place with the package design projects of graphic design students Deric Shindledecker and Trey Cahalan. Working with Professor Mary LaPorte, graphic design concentration students collaborated with fellow students from industrial technology and packaging. These awards are a real credit to their creativity, hard work and dedication.
