Keep Australia Beautiful 2013 Clean Beaches Awards

Surf Clubs across NSW have played a major role in the Keep Australia Beautiful Clean Beaches Program and expressions of interest and submissions are now open for the 2013 Awards.

In 2012, North Palm Beach, North Wollongong Beach, Fingal Head and Cabarita Surf Life Saving Clubs were all recognised for their participation in the program. North Palm Beach picked up a high commendation at the 2012 Keep Australia Beautiful Awards for their dune restoration work in the local area.

To assist with entries Keep Australia Beautiful are running a selection of workshops. The workshops are open for any organisation or individual that would like more information about Keep Australia Beautiful NSW, the Clean Beaches Awards Program and tips on creating an award winning submission.

Participants can expect to learn about the programs, changes to the 2013 Clean Beaches Awards Program, benefits of participating, how to enter, the assessing and judging process, case studies of previous winners, key dates and more.

If you are considering participating this year or in the future, or if you would just like to find out more about the organisation and how you can get involved, RSVP as soon as possible to Clean Beaches.
