Legrand, a partner of choice for the world of education
Between november 2008 and April 2009, Legrand organized the second edition of the "Legrand ELEC Young Talent Challenge" for students and apprentices in electrical engineering. The competition unfolded in three stages, beginning with an Internet challenge which recorded over 3 000 participants, then moving on to the semi-final which involved the 32 highest-ranking candidates from phase 1. Lastly, the final saw 16 candidates tasked with producing an electrical installation in actual worksite conditions, around functions in power, communication and home automation.
Besides the reward for each finalist, the prize-winner will enjoy the opportunity of participating in a humanitarian project in India together with the GO "Electriciens Sans Frontières" (Electricans without borders), with which Legrand has signed a sponsorship agreement.
By organizing this competition, Legrand confirms its intention to showcase and promote the entire electrical industry while boosting its position as a partner for the world of education.
