The prize for the winner of the RentSkills Highly Recommended Award is $1,000 in cash and a framed certificate. The four RentSkills Merit Award winners will receive a framed certificate and $750 each.   MBIE has specified that recipients of these Merit Awards must only use the payments to broaden their existing avenues for learning or supporting their management of their tenancy relationships and not for complying with their legal obligations as landlords.
