Water Safety Awards to Celebrate Outstanding Achievement

Water Safety Awards to Celebrate Outstanding Achievement

On Wednesday 1 December 2010 the annual Water Safety Awards will be presented at a ceremony at Te Papa in Wellington.

“Hosted by Water Safety New Zealand (WSNZ) the Awards recognise excellence, achievement and innovation in water safety, and offer an opportunity for organisations and individuals involved in water safety to showcase their successes”, explains WSNZ General Manager Matt Claridge.

Established to promote a culture of excellence in the water safety sector, the Awards support the New Zealand Water Safety Framework and help WSNZ and its member organisations to achieve this by identifying and highlighting initiatives working well.

Awards will be given in three categories: Education, Awareness and Prevention. There is also an Outstanding Contribution Award which is presented to recognise those who have made a positive difference in the water safety sector.

In addition to the four annual Awards, WSNZ will this year be introducing a ‘Media Partner Award’. Claridge continues, “We have had some fantastic support from media partners in recent years who recognise the importance of water safety as an issue for all New Zealand communities and we think it is appropriate to acknowledge this support.”

The New Zealand Water Safety Awards will be held on December 1 2010 from 12.30pm to 2.00pm. The venue is Icon Restaurant, Te Papa, Wellington.
