The deadline for submissions will be April 23, 2024.

Get a head start!

If you want to make optimal use of the competition period, you can start preparing now: Form a team and find committed team members so you can hit the ground running in January. Your team should definitely be mixed so that students and adults work together.

And here's a tip in advance:

For participation in the competition, your team must consist of at least four different groups of people. These include students, teachers, school social workers, educators, school administrators, janitors, and cleaning staff. The more supporters your concept has, the more likely it is to be successfully implemented in your school.

So, register for the Toiletten machen Schule newsletter (in German language) to not miss the starting signal and receive additional tips.
