Educational Outreach Awards

MAPP offers an annual "Educational Outreach Contest" in celebration of manufacturers who have worked over the past 12 months to engage young people in the manufacturing industry. Every Manufacturing Day, MAPP will recognize up to three member companies with the Educational Outreach Award. Members interested in participating must submit at least one of the following:
  • A description of how your company has worked with local schools, programs or students to raise awareness and build interest in the plastics industry over the last year
  • Photos from recent events your company has attended or hosted to raise awareness or build skills in young people in your community
  • A video showing/explaining your company's educational outreach efforts

You can view submissions from award winners in the annual Best Practices Books found here.
