Environment Southland wants to recognise and reward your achievements in enhancing our environment.
We know that many community groups, schools, families and
individuals are taking action in their own backyards to make a
significant difference to their environment. Businesses, farmers and
industries are also adopting good environmental practices.
You can nominate yourself or a group/business/farm/school
that you’re involved with, or someone else whose activities are
benefitting the environment. If you are putting forward someone else,
they must sign the form so we can be sure they agree to being nominated.
All projects/activities must either be located in the
Southland region, have been developed in Southland or be of demonstrable
benefit to Southland’s environment.
Previous nominees and highly commended nominees may be nominated
again. Please note however, that the judges will be looking for
significant advances or improvements in ongoing projects that have been
considered for an award previously.
Closing date and judging
Entries must be received by Friday 13 May.
Nominees will receive a follow-up call to confirm receipt
of the nomination and to discuss the process for judging. Judges will
make site visits to meet nominees/assess projects and activities between
19 May and 15 June.
Prizes & awards ceremony
Courtesy of our sponsors, the winning entries will
receive prizes that include cash, travel, native plants, legal and
financial services. Every nominee will be invited to the award ceremony
at the Ascot Park Hotel, Invercargill, on Thursday 28 July, when the
winners will be announced.
