Canadian Students Win Phoenix Challenge


Two Canadian students were declared winners of the 12th Annual Intl. Phoenix Challenge Flexo Skills Competition, which took place at Harper National Flexographic Ctr. at Central Piedmont Community College April 1-3.

Two and a half days of intense competition culminated in a first-place award and $1,000 scholarships each for Hannah Plavnick and Stephanie Hammond, the team from Gordon Graydon Memorial Secondary School, Mississauga, ON. The pair earned the highest combined scores in five exams: written knowledge, math, prepress proficiency, press operation, and platemaking.

Brittney Skinner and Brandon Smith, students from the Fairfield Career & Technology Ctr. in Winnsboro, SC, won second-place honors, while Abdul Murad and Grant Izukawa, also from Graydon Secondary School won third place, competing against 20 teams.

Founded in 1998, the Phoenix Challenge Foundation is an all-volunteer not-for-profit organization of industry professionals dedicated to the development of the future workforce for flexography. For more information visit
