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.

All places for 2021 were allocated. 

The children and young people were artists from April to November 2021.

The campaign is aimed at pupils from the 5th grade. In a week-long project, each class designed 15 junction boxes in their city.

"Most creative junction box 2021" competition

Due to the large number of registrations for our competition, there were three categories the young artists could apply for with their classes, groups or projects.

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

1. Classic prize for junction boxes

School classes, clubs and groups can apply for this prize with one of their junction box designs. It is important that the group or class still exists at the time of the award ceremony so that the prize money can also be spent as a group. The three classes/groups of the winning boxes will each receive a prize of 500 euros for the "class/group kitty".

1st place

Grundschule im Blumenviertel, Animals in the city" motif

2nd place

Melli-Beese-Grundschule, "Turtle in the sea" motif

3rd place

2. Special prize "Projects" for junction boxes

All young artists who have designed their junction box as part of a group or holiday project can apply for this prize. Project participants who created their junction box design with their class in the second half of the 6th or 10th grade also fall under this group. The teams behind the three winning boxes in this category receive vouchers for online shops.

3. Special prize for transformer stations

In our projects, it's not just junction boxes that are colourfully designed, but transformer stations too. That’s why we also have a special prize for the most creative transformer station. The winning team also receives vouchers. There was a points tie this year, so we had two first place winners.
