Who are the environmental champions in your community?

We know that many community groups, schools, businesses and farmers are taking action to make a significant difference to our environment. Environment Southland wants to recognise and reward those unsung heroes in our community that are taking a leading role in the environmental space.

You can nominate yourself or someone else/a group/business/farm/school that you're involved with or know about whose activities are benefiting the environment. If you are putting forward someone else, you must confirm they agree to be nominated.

ELIGIBILITY
All projects/actions 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 only if there have been significant advances or improvements on projects/actions previously considered.

CLOSING DATE AND JUDGING
Entries must be received by 5pm Friday 30 July.

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 at a pre-arranged time between 16 August and 22 September to meet nominees and assess projects and actions.

PRIZES & AWARDS CEREMONY
The winning entries will receive prizes courtesy of our sponsors that include cash and vouchers.

All nominees will be invited to attend the awards dinner to be held on Friday 29 October at the Ascot Park Hotel, Invercargill, where the winners will be announced.
