OTAGO/SOUTHLAND

Awards of Excellence

NOMINEES


Introduction

Otago/Southland'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.
