2013 Aquatic Industry Awards - Nominations NOW OPEN!

Nominations have now opened for the 2013 ACT Aquatic Industry Awards. The annual presentation ceremony, to be held in February 2014, will see local lifesavers, aquatic educators and water safety advocates recognised for their
inspiring efforts towards aquatic safety and drowning prevention throughout the Canberra community.

Cherry O’Connor from Royal Life Saving ACT says the introduction of a new award is exciting. “The new Aquatic Initiative Award was introduced this year to recognise individuals and organisations or community groups who are doing new and exciting things for the promotion of water safety and drowning prevention in the ACT. We hope this category will also encourage more active participation in aquatic activity throughout the community.”
