Surf Life Saving Australia goes virtual for the 2021 Awards of Excellence
The annual award night pays tribute and celebrates the extraordinary efforts of members in Surf Life Saving who have demonstrated outstanding acts in the surf, on the beach, in their clubs and in the community in 2020-21.
In 2021, the annual event will take place virtually on Saturday, November 6 due to COVID-19 restrictions and will consist of both live in studio presentations as well as virtual interviews and appearances from members across Australia.
Throughout the night there will be 13 award categories across lifesaving, education, and sport, as well the prestigious Meritorious Awards for outstanding and brave rescues. The new SLSA Life Members announced in 2021 will also be acknowledged during the event
Surf Life Saving Australia’s President John Baker ESM said that the annual Awards of Excellence recognise the significant contributions individuals and clubs make in keeping the Australian coastline safe and protecting the community.
“We are excited to once again hold our Awards ceremony virtually after the success of the event in 2020 and we look forward to beaming into surf clubs around the country this year,” Baker ESM said.
“We hope that surf clubs around Australia will gather where they can or join from home to celebrate the amazing contributions of our members and the commitment to our incredible organisation.”
The SLSA Awards of Excellence will be live from 5:30PM (AEDT) on Saturday November 6 and will be streamed via the SLSA Facebook page.
