Junction box styling 2021

School classes from across the Berlin city region could apply to take part in the "junction box styling" school project once again.

Please note that all project places are taken now.

The selected applicants will then be able to show off their artistic sides from April to November.

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.

Due to the high number of applications to take part in our competition we have three categories that the young artists can compete in with their classes, groups or projects. Please note the separate information in the documents.

Depending on the overall number of entrants, Stromnetz Berlin may, if necessary, make a pre-selection of entries to go forward to be judged by the jury.

The categories in the "Most creative junction box 2021" competition

1. Classic prize for junction boxes
School classes, associations and groups can each submit an entry for this prize with one of their designed junction boxes. It is important that the group or class still exists at the time of the prize giving, so that the prize money can be given to the whole group. The three classes/groups with the winning boxes will be awarded EUR 500 each for their class/group kitty.

2. Special prize "Projects" for junction boxes
Any young artists who designed their junction box as part of a group or holiday project can enter for this prize. Project participants who designed their junction boxes with their class in the second semester of the 6th or 10th grade also fall into this category. The teams with the three winning boxes in this category will receive vouchers for online-shops.

3. Special prize for transformer stations
As part of painting projects, transformer stations are acquiring colorful designs as well as junction boxes. This is why we are awarding a special prize for the most creative transformer station. The winning team will also receive vouchers.


Public prize for junction boxes
As a highlight all Berlin inhabitants can select their favorite junction box on Instagram Stromkastenberlin. Junction boxes in the "classic prize" and "projects special prize" categories will be entered automatically (either all or a pre-chosen selection, depending on the total number of entrants). The team with the winning box receives a great prize.

The prize giving ceremony
The prize giving ceremony will place in the afternoon on 20 January 2022. A limited number of artists from each category will be invited (either all artists, or those whose entries were chosen at the pre-selection stage, depending on the overall number of entrants). The relevant teams will receive invitations in early January 2022.

The Jury
Depending on the overall number of entrants, Stromnetz Berlin may, if necessary, make a pre-selection of entries to go forward to be judged by the jury.

The jury then selects the winner from these suggestions. Members include: artists, representatives from Stromnetz Berlin GmbH, representatives from Stromnetz Berlin GmbH's Customer Advisory Board, children and young people and representatives from the world of politics.

The idea for the design and overall implementation are judged.
