Wahine Toa Award

Historically women have been under-represented in the river management and engineering professions. This award aims to celebrate a female role model who is leading the way in a river related field.

Applicants should be female rivers group members. If you are considering nominating someone who has made a significant impact over an extended period, then you may also want to consider nominating them for the Arch Campbell award.
