Rainbow Club members (can only) reach their potential in the water with the support and encouragement of teachers, families, committee members and supporters, and many individuals devote a lot of time and energy to this goal.
For many, feedback and appreciation from members is its own reward but Rainbow Club Australia feels outstanding people should be recognised and promoted. And so, thus we have two Rainbow Club Aqua Awards:
The first award is the Aqua Volunteer and nominations are called for Committee Members, fundraisers or anybody who has contributed in a volunteer capacity to the success of Rainbow Club at any level.
The second award is the Aqua Teacher and nominations are called to recognise a Rainbow Club Teacher who has contributed above and beyond the duties and time for which they have been paid.
Nominations and Judging
- Nominations can be made by anybody who has themselves been involved with Rainbow Club in some capacity (including children, parents, teachers, staff members, Rainbow Club Board).
- Nominations must be submitted on-line on the Rainbow Club Aqua Awards web page.
- Nominations close on Monday 3 September. Late nominations will not be considered.
- Judging of nominations will be carried out by an “Awards Committee” consisting of the Rainbow Club President, Alexandra Finley, Rainbow Club Vice President, Rob Lloyd and an invited external judge.
- Winners are judged purely on the information you provide; the judging panel does not necessarily know the person concerned, therefore, please provide as much detail as possible.
- The judges have the discretion to make more than one award should they see fit.
- The names of all finalists will be posted on our website one week prior to the announcement of the winners
- The winners of the Rainbow Club Aqua Volunteer and Teacher Awards will be announced at Rainbow Connect on Sunday 14 October 2018.
- Winners names will be displayed on the Roll of Honour on our website and in all official Rainbow Club publications.
Please choose the award for the person you would like to nominate.
