What is Scanstar Student Competition

ScanStar Student Competition is a Nordic packaging competition held by SPA, the Scandinavian Packaging Association. This competition will be organized by each national packaging association in turn in connection with the main competition, ScanStar.

Winning this competition entitles to an award certificate and will give access for student winners to take part in the WorldStar Student Packaging Competition. Updated rules for the WorldStar Student are published on the competition website.

The Scandinavian Packaging Association will not place the entry to the WorldStar Student Packaging Competition, but the entrant(s) country member of the SPA will do it. The application fee of the WorldStar Student Competition will also be paid by the SPA country member.
