Surf Life Saving New Zealand - Eastern Region Awards programme aims to recognise the contribution of our members to Surf Life Saving in the Eastern Region. The Region is split into three areas; Coromandel, Bay of Plenty & Gisborne/Tairawhiti, with each area represented in each of the award categories. For these three areas, there are two local Awards of Excellence ceremonies; Bay of Plenty & Coromandel, and Gisborne/Tairāwhiti. Each club is entitled and encouraged to enter one nomination per category (typically the winning club equivalent for the category).
