BP Rescue of the Month

BP Rescue of the Month awards recognise the outstanding rescues performed by our members throughout the surf lifesaving patrol season. Surf Life Saving Clubs can nominate their members for their contributions in protecting our community in the water.

From November through to March, three winners will be chosen and one of those will be recognised as the national winner of BP Rescue of the Month. The national winners of BP Rescue of the Month will receive a $500 BP gift card while the second and third placed rescues each month will receive $300 and $200 BP gift cards respectively. The national winner will also receive a citation to proudly display at their club and recognition in the Surf Life Saving New Zealand Member News newsletter.

The monthly national winners will  go on to be finalists for BP Rescue of the Year which is announced at the annual Surf Life Saving Zealand Awards of Excellence. The winners of the BP Rescue of the Year are recognised with a plaque and a $1,000 BP gift card for their club.

If your club wins BP Rescue of the Month, SLSNZ may approach the lifeguards and/or the club for further media opportunities.
