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 blog or post about it. 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.

Senior entrants will outline their challenge, the problem they plan to solve and how they will measure success. All 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 prize package equivalent $500 to support their work sponsored by the New Zealand Coastal Society. All senior challenges must be completed by the end of March 2020.

Entries close on Friday 31st January 2020. Nominees will all be featured on the Seaweek website and/or social media channels. Voting for the Ocean Champion will start on Sunday 1st of February here. The Ocean Champion Awards will be presented in conjunction with the Bill Ballentine memorial lecture during Seaweek (date TBC).

Our Senior Champions 2018 and 2019 received a prize package equivalent $500 to support their work sponsored by the New Zealand Coastal Society.
