We’re looking for schools undertaking a water-care policy and invite submissions of written or video content showcasing what you’re doing to help protect your waters.This could be a rubbish clean up, planting or weed clearing day around banks of your waters or educating your members about nearby wildlife and how to minimize disruption to them.The winning crew or school will be awarded an erg for their rowing programme and invited to tour the Rowing NZ High Performance Centre with members of the New Zealand elite team. Oh, and they’ll also take you out for a training session during the Aon Maadi Cup.
