Junction box styling 2018
School classes from across the city region could apply to take part in the "junction box styling" school project. In 2018 the painting and spraying project will get underway for the tenth time.
The places are forgiven. Participating schools will be notified by the end of the year at the latest. The selected applicants will then be able to show off their artistic sides from April to October next year.
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 over the past few years, in 2018 there will, once again, be three categories that the young artists can compete in with their classes, groups or projects.
The documents for the application are currently being prepared and will be published in early 2018.
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 2018" competition
1. Classic prize for junction boxes
As in previous years, school classes, associations and groups can each submit an entry for this prize. 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.This applies in particular to school classes which design a junction box in the 2nd semester of the 6th or 10th grade. These belong to the special prize category "Projects".
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 grade also fall into this category. The teams with the three winning boxes in this category will receive great art equipment and vouchers.
3. Special prize for transformer stations
As part of painting projects, transformer stations are acquiring colourful designs as well as junction boxes. This is whywe are awarding a special prize for the most creative transformer station. The winning team will receive great art equipment and vouchers.
Public prize for junction boxes
As in previous years, all Berlin inhabitants can select their favourite junction box. 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 take place in late November 2018. 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 November 2018.
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.
