Surf Woman of the Year is a celebration of the most passionate, talented and hardworking women within organisation. The program seeks to engage the most capable women from surf lifesaving clubs across Queensland and develop their skills and experience to further their future careers both within and outside the Surf Life Saving movement. The program will also connect women from across the state and in turn build a powerful alumni network.

The Surf Woman of the Year 2021 Program entrants will be responsible for representing the movement in promoting surf safety, fundraising, and the important role of Surf Life Saving in the wider community. The Surf Woman of the Year Program will feature additional learning and development opportunities to benefit each entrant and their respective clubs.
