SPI Announces Its 2012 Plastics Student Video Contest During NPE2012

On April 4, 2012 during its NPE2012 trade show in Orlando, FL, SPI: The Plastics Industry Trade Association, informed plastics engineering students

and plastics educators that it will again award prizes to students for producing short videos on the positive benefits of plastics. Additionally, grants will be made to the prize-winning students’ academic programs.

About 250 plastics engineering students attended the SPE Student Awards Luncheon, a record number.

The 2012 Plastics Student Video Contest, whose theme is “Plastics Mean Innovation,” will open for entries on August 19, 2012 and entries must be submitted by November 19, 2012. Details will be posted by July 1, 2012, but for the participating students will be substantially the same as the successful 2011 SPI Student Video Contest. Yet there is a significant difference in this year’s program: In addition to the cash prizes for first, second, and third place winners, there will also be cash grants given the school programs in which the winning students are enrolled.

The announcement was made first by Wylie Royce of Royce Colors, who chairs the SPI Communications and Marketing Committee, to the Plastics Educators Group of the Society of Plastics Engineers at the Group’s business meeting held during SPE’s ANTEC sessions.

During the luncheon held to honor students for the papers they presented at ANTEC, Frank Kavanagh of Maguire Products, another member of SPI’s Communications and Marketing Committee, informed the approximately 250 students and educators in attendance about the scope of the contest and the additional prizes for the schools.

The number of students at the SPE luncheon was a record number for the event, reflecting the increased effort the Society has made to involve plastics engineering students in its activities. For SPI, the Student Video Contest is a feature of its renewed public outreach program, aimed at educating the general public on the benefits and value of plastic products.
