Huge congratulations to the winners of our two national Seaweek competitions and thanks to everyone who entered, the judges found it really hard to decide.
The winner of the Fish4all photo competition was Happy Steps Early Learning Centre at Dargaville who thoroughly enjoyed their seafood BBQ prize.
The winner of the Experiencing Marine Reserves video competition was Anna Parson from Aramoana with her video called My Local Marine Life. You can watch it here: https://youtu.be/lpG7a0V2EYk
Anna won a wetsuit from Wettie, so no doubt she will be spending even more time exploring her local marine life in future!
Makauri School from Gisborne also won the class prize in the EMR video competition with this entry: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=10&v=FT6rovSfiU4

Seaweek 2019 Event Report Winners
We challenged everyone who attended a Seaweek 2019 event to submit an Event Report and tell us what they thought about it. Thanks to everyone who took the time to do that, we get some really useful data that we use to let our sponsors know how successful Seaweek is.
We did a prize draw from all those entries and the winner of the Participant Evaluation prize is Vicki Smith from Nelson who attended the EMR Cable Bay Snorkel Day.
The winning Event Coordinator is Jenny Baker from Napier who organised the Hawkes Bay Beach Clean-up.
The winning Regional Coordinator is Nataalia Lunson from DOC in Bay of Plenty West who put on a fantastic programme of events in her first year as a Seaweek Regional Coordinator.
All our winners will receive a copy of Sally Carson & Rod Morris’s fantastic book The Collins Guide to the New Zealand Seashore, which is a must have for every home & classroom. Congratulations everyone! Huge thanks to Harper Collins Publishers for donating the books for us to give away.
