The national winner is Kariaotahi for their part in a multi-agency response in the search for a missing vessel in the Waikato River bar area on April 6.
As national winners, Kariaotahi will receive a $500 gift card from BP to help with the financial costs of keeping communities safe in the water. Our regional winners will each receive a $100 BP gift card.
Safety, excellence, courage and respect are fundamental to the work clubs deliver throughout New Zealand. The extraordinary efforts shown by all the lifeguards involved were outstanding - you can all be proud of your fellow Surf Lifeguards.
