CANTERBURY

Awards of Excellence

NOMINEES


Introduction

Canterbury's Local Awards of Excellence programme

recognises the contribution of our amazing members

from the grass roots of Surf Life Saving during the

2019/2020 season. Nominations are 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 SLSNZ National Awards of Excellence

to be held later in 2020.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we were unable to host this

year's awards in person. However we are delighted to

announce this year's nominees.

Congratulations to all of our nominees. We are

incredibly proud and grateful for all that

you do and achieve.
