MAPP Honors Member Champions with Educational Outreach Award 

Indianapolis, IN – On October 5, 2018, the Manufacturers Association for Plastics Processors (MAPP) honored three member companies with the MAPP 2018 Educational Outreach Awards. Coinciding with Manufacturing Day, these awards recognize those MAPP member companies who go above and beyond in their efforts to bridge the skills gap and create excitement about plastics manufacturing among local students and community members.

Awards this year were distributed to three winners:

  • 1st Place Winner – Innovative Components (Schaumburg, IL)
  • 2nd Place Winner – Adkev, Inc. (Monticello, IN)
  • 3rd Place Winner – Viking Plastics (Corry, PA)

Through strategic partnerships with schools, programs and/or students, these awardees have all made significant efforts to increase interest, raise awareness and build skills within the plastics industry.

Scholarships will be awarded in the amounts of $1,500, $750 and $500 respectively, which will go to the recipient’s educational institution or program of choice. The awards will be distributed at the 2018 Benchmarking and Best Practices Conference in Indianapolis, IN on October 11-12. MAPP congratulates the 2018 Educational Outreach Champion Award winners and extends a special thanks to all who participated in this year’s award program.
