Popular school pupil competition focuses on glass as packaging material

“Future Challenge Glass. It’s in your hands – design your future!” This year, many school pupils in Austria again responded to this call and participated in the annual competition organised by the Friends of Glass Austria.

Among the results produced during the 2019/20 school year are exceptionally creative posters put together by pupils at the lower level of secondary schooling that not only highlight the positive properties of glass using visual elements but also employ ingenious slogans such as “Glass means a HEALTHY FUTURE” and “Plastics have clouded our view – the solution is as CLEAR AS GLASS”. At the same time, pupils at the upper stage of secondary education were able to perfectly showcase the benefits of glass packaging in expertly designed and well-formulated presentations.

Sustainable success thanks to target group-orientated activities
Competitions are an ideal means of engaging the interest of the target group of young people as this year’s competition has once again demonstrated; the associated suitably balanced combination of provision of specialised information and stimulation of the imagination ensures that young people, tomorrow’s consumers, will engage actively and over the long term with the subject of glass as a healthy and eco-friendly packaging material.
