Sea Week

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 HarperCollins Publishers New Zealand for donating the books for us to give away.
