2020 SLSNZ Awards of Excellence Winners Booklet


The Surf Life Saving National Awards of Excellence programme recognises the contribution of our amazing members from the grass roots of Surf Life Saving during the 2019/2020 season. Congratulations to all of our winners and award recipients.

The fantastic DHL team continued their focus to help Surf Life

Saving “drive safer beaches,” with the launch of the Flip

n Stay Safe game – a memory game that promoted our key

beach safety messages through digital gaming. We know

prevention is better than cure and the best way to save lives at

the beach is by teaching people how to stay out of danger.

The game was effective in not only engaging the public

but also helping in memory retention of our beach safety

messages, which ultimately will help change behaviours

towards keeping safer on New Zealand beaches. The winner

received $1000 cash and another $2000 was awarded to their

club of choice – in this case, it was Mairangi Bay SLSC. A hard

copy version was also produced and the game was thoroughly

enjoyed at Surf Lifesaving sports events across New Zealand.

We are truly indebted to DHL for helping reinforce

essential lifesaving messages to kiwis.
