Young Berlin residents have the chance to creatively redesign junction boxes in their district or near their schools. Over 3,000 of these splashes of colour can now be found all across the city. Approximately 500 junction boxes have been sprayed and spruced up this year as part of the "junction box styling" project. This is the sixth time Stromnetz Berlin GmbH has carried out the project together with the associations meredo e.V. and Helliwood media & education im fjs e.V.
The contest to find the "Most Creative Junction Box 2018" will pay tribute to the efforts of all of the participants and mark the end of the project. Around 20 school classes and project groups have submitted their entries, which will be evaluated by an official jury in three categories.
