So what's the story?

There are nearly a million volunteers in New Zealand who give up their time for sport so Lotto NZ and Sport NZ  have teamed up to reward them for the awesome work they do.

Sports volunteers or 'Sport Makers' come in all shapes and sizes - whether it’s blowing a whistle, coaching, balancing the books or helping cook the sausages for the fundraising BBQ - they are all important in helping make sport happen.

Twice a year we call on the public to nominate a deserving Sport Maker in their community.  We choose the 10 best and reward them with Lotto Volunteers gear as well as fun experience prizes! 

Nominations are currently closed, but you can keep up-to-date with everything Sport Maker on our Lotto Volunteers Facebook page.
