This year’s Ocean Champion competition requires entrants to undertake a specific Ocean Challenge to help solve a problem in the marine environment. Junior entrants (under 16) will all be entered into a prize draw for a selection of fantastic spot prizes. Junior challenges must be completed by 21 December 2018.
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 to at least $500 to support their work sponsored by the New Zealand Coastal Society. All senior challenges must be completed by the end of March 2019.
Entries will close on Friday 21 December 2018. Nominees will all be featured on the Seaweek website and/or social media channels.
