Be a safe boatie mate
Make a 30 – 60 second video that shows what it means to 'Be a safe boatie mate' – whether it's encouraging your mates to wear a lifejacket, prepping your boat before heading out or flying a dive flag.
You must use the following catchphrase in the video - 'Be a safe boatie mate'.
Anyone can ‘be a safe boatie mate’ – your mates, your papa, an aunty, a mum, your mokopuna, an uncle, the cuzzies – anyone!
We’re not asking for super fancy videos – your smartphone will do the job! We’ll share a few video inspo’s on our Facebook page to help get your creative juices flowing.
Entries close 15 December.
There are two categories:
- Community group / Individual
If you’re a school, you could win an iPad for your classroom to assist in your learning.
If you’re a community group or individual, you could take home a Go Pro action camera to capture your adventures.
