The Society of Plastic Engineers (SPE) announced its second annual "Plastics for Life" global parts competition and issued a call for part nominations.
The competition is open to parts that have previously won a category award or competition during the past year in an SPE TOPCON (topical conference) or Minicon (mini-conference). Winners, to be selected by a panel of industry experts and media representatives, will be announced in a special press conference to be held on March 23, 2015 during the SPE Annual Technical Conference (ANTEC Orlando 2015) in Orlando, FL.
Winners will be chosen in four categories: Protecting Life (preservation, safety, containment, protection); Quality of Life (mobility, communication, luxury/comfort, recreation, entertainment); Improving Life (education, energy, opportunity, health); and Sustaining Life (environmental, conservation, sustainability, recycling, reduction). In addition, there will be a grand award and a people's choice award.
