What do the Awards Offer?
The Awards showcase efforts in Marlborough to enhance and protect the environment and use resources and energy efficiently. It is an opportunity for entrants to share their knowledge and experience and get independent feedback from the judges on what they’re doing and what could be improved. Winners receive positive publicity and prizes worth $1,000 - $3,000.
The Field Days at the winning properties are a highlight of the Awards. They are relaxed gatherings that spread the word about what the winner is achieving and provide inspiration for members of the public.
A Schools Environment Award runs alongside the main awards and is open to all schools in Marlborough. The 2012/2013 winner was Springlands School with their project focusing on improving the Taylor River in Blenheim.
