Junction box styling

Monday - Friday, 8am - 5pm
The project is aimed at pupils in year 5 and above. Each class designs junction boxes in their neighbourhood as a week-long project. The selected applications will then be able to apply their artistic skills between April and October.
A junction box, also known as a cable distribution cabinet, distributes energy to multiple domestic connections. It is the interface between the grid stations and households. In Berlin there are around 16,000 junction boxes, which distribute energy to 2.3 million households.
Since 2013, any participating school has been able to enter its best junction box into a competition. This is how we reward the children and young people's engagement. The prize for the best junction box is awarded by a jury in the two categories and for transformer stations.
In addition, we award a public prize every year. This is voted for via our website. The prizes for the best junction boxes are awarded at an invitation-only celebratory prize giving ceremony.
