Saica announces Sustainable Box Contest winners

Repuprosed box creations reflect the company’s new U.S. home.

Saica Group, a leading manufacturer of recycled paper for corrugated board, recently announced winners of the Sustainable Box Contest, which awarded $500 prizes for the most creative way to repupurpose a cardboard box. 

The winning entries are listed below (hi-res images available): 

Leah Hughes from Hamilton, won for her depiction of a cicada, remembering the 17-year cicada invasion that happened in Ohio last summer. 

Abbie Warrick from Sumter, South Carolina won for her adorable cardboard carrying case.

And Ford Clark from Cincinnati created “Sing the Saica City” entry, featuring a skyline of Cincinnati made of cardboard.

Winners received $500 awards except for Ford Clark, who could not accept the award due to his employer’s rules. Saica made a donation to the Little Miami Conservancy.

“The creativity we saw was amazing – I am really impressed,” said Akin Önder, General Manager, Saica U.S. “The contest gave us a chance to connect with the community we’re joining here in the U.S. and demonstrated how our products can be reused and repurposed.”
