In light of the recent announcement by the government surrounding COVID-19, the Otago/Southland Awards of Excellence scheduled to be held on the 22nd of May has been cancelled. For more information about SLSNZ's response, please refer to the COVID-19 page on our website.
Surf Life Saving New Zealand's Local Awards of Excellence programme recognizes contribution of our members from the grass roots of Surf Life Saving during the 2019/2020 season. Each club is entitled and encouraged to enter one nomination per category (typically the winning club equivalent for the category).
Nominations will be judged against the criteria outlined for each award by a local Honours and Awards, Sport or Lifesaving Committee.
The winners of some categories of the local awards of excellence will automatically become finalists for the prestigious national DHL Awards of Excellence to be held later in 2020. Finalists will be judged by the National Sport Committee, National Lifesaving Committee or the board of SLSNZ depending on the award category.
