OCEAN CHAMPION CHALLENGE 2020

What does it take to be an Ocean Champion?

This year’s Ocean Champion competition requires entrants to undertake a specific Ocean Challenge to help solve a problem in the marine environment. If you or a group have an Ocean Challenge that you would like to undertake you could be our Ocean Champion 2020.

Junior entrants (under 16) will outline their challenge and write about it; share it on a blog or post about it on a local community noticeboard. Junior challenges must be completed by Friday the 31st January 2020. All junior entries will be entered into a prize draw for a selection of fantastic spot prizes.

Thank you to Young Ocean Explorer’s and Kelly Tarlton’s Sea Life Aquarium, Rethink and Experiencing Marine Reserves for providing some fantastic prizes for Junior Nominees!

Senior entrants are required to outline their challenge, the problem they plan to solve and how they will measure success. They must share their challenge with the community; whether through social media, blogging or some other way that engages others. All senior challenges must be completed by the end of March 2020. 

Senior entrants will be featured on the Seaweek website and voting will take place during February on the Seaweek website to choose the winner who will receive a $500 cheque to support their work sponsored by the New Zealand Coastal Society who has been sponsoring this award since 2018.

Entries close on Sunday 9th February 2020. Nominees will all be featured on the Seaweek website and social media channels.

Voting for the Ocean Champion will start on Monday 10th of February here.
