Around 150 young artists, along with their teachers and parents, eagerly awaited the announcement of the winners of this year's "Most creative junction box" competition. Stromnetz Berlin rounded off the award ceremony on Wednesday afternoon in proper style with burgers and popcorn. Prizes in the three categories included a contribution to the class fund, vouchers and cinema tickets.

Stromnetz Berlin CEO Thomas Schäfer, together with radio talk show host Big Moe, announced the choices of the jury, which awarded points in two categories – in one case resulting in a tie.

The third prize went to the "Girls move" project in Wedding with the "Underwater in Wedding" design.

Public prize for junction boxes
During a two-week period, all Berlin residents could cast their votes online for their favourite junction boxes via the Instagram profile "stromkastenberlin". After a few days, the winner – Konrad-Duden-Schule (Pankow) with their "Gorilla" design – had already built up a strong lead with more than 3,000 likes. The prize for the winning team is a group outing to the cinema with popcorn.

From March to October 2019, nearly 40 Berlin schools with around 600 pupils in total created designs on more than 400 junction boxes and 20 transformer stations, and 21 of the participating school classes and projects entered their designs into the competition. Professional support during the project period was provided by two associations: meredo and Helliwood media & education
