Since 2012, PPI and the Pacific Printing Industries Educational Trust have hosted an annual scholarship program - the PrintROCKS! Poster Contest. High school and college students in the PPI region are invited to design the promotional poster for PrintROCKS! Awards and compete for cash scholarships. There are two categories: high school and college, each receiving scholarship awards.
