Junction box styling 2019

School classes from across the city region could apply to take part in the "junction box styling" school project. In 2019 the painting and spraying project will get underway for the tenth time. The project is aimed at pupils in year 5 and above. During the week-long project week, every class will redesign 15 junction boxes in their local area.

We are delighted that so many of Berlin's younger inhabitants are taking an interest and brightening the city with their creatively designed junction boxes. This year once again, we have rewarded this engagement with the "Most creative junction box 2019" competition.

Winner public prize



Competition "Most creative junction box 2019"

More than twenty Berlin school classes entered this year's competition. The three most creative boxes in each of the two categories were selected by a jury of eight. Members of the jury evaluated the entries according to the idea and the design. The results this year were once again very close. You were also offered a chance to get involved and select your favourites for the public prize. 

We will continue the project with the associations again next year, and the schools participating in 2020 have already been confirmed. However, any schools interested in taking part may contact us or our project partners at any time.

The prizes were awarded as follows

On 27 November 2019, over 200 guests waited expectantly for the winners to be announced. The cash and material prizes were awarded to the school representatives by Thomas Schäfer, CEO of Stromnetz Berlin, with support from Big Moe, host on 98.9 KISS FM. All attendees then celebrated the winning project with festivities at burger und popcorn.
