What is the

Democracy cannot be taken for granted. With our competition, we were looking for people and projects that strengthen our democracy with commitment and creative ideas. With a short video, numerous projects from all over Germany have applied that thrive on voluntary work. Since July 15, you now have the opportunity to vote for your favorite project. Voting is open to all and anonymous.

The winning projects will receive a prize and will be invited to the "Tag der KAS" in Berlin on September 12. Accommodation and travel expenses will be covered in accordance with the Federal Travel Expenses Act. The prize for first place is €1,500. Second place will receive €1,000 and third place €500.
