CONSERVATIONIST COMPETITION

Rowing is nothing without boats and water. And while we’re pretty sure you’re all looking after your boats well, we’re a bit worried about New Zealand’s water.

Rowing NZ are proud to be sponsored by the Waikato River Authority, and together we're educating New Zealanders about the importance of protecting our waterways.

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.

Submit your written or video entry to maadicup@rowingnz.kiwi with ‘CONSERVATIONIST’ in the subject line before 12 March 2021.

Video file format required: MP4 videos filmed in horizontal format 16:9. HD (1080 or 720p).

A prize will be awarded to the school undertaking the best conservation work.
