It’s that time of the year again. Nominations for our annual John Kelly Award are currently being accepted until September 30th. Surfrider Oahu’s John Kelly Environmental Achievement Awards recognize those who have made the greatest contributions towards protecting or enhancing our coastal community and environment. John Kelly, for whom the award is named, was the original recipient of the Lifetime Achievement category. For decades, Kelly led many environmental crusades on O‘ahu. Sadly, John Kelly passed away in 2007, but through this annual event he will be remembered and honored by the Surfrider Foundation.
The Oahu Chapter seeks to promote environmental activism by honoring the efforts and achievements of inspirational individuals and organizations. Award categories are Lifetime Achievement, Professional Surfer, and Oahu-based company.
