Centek Industries is asking boaters to share their creative side by hosting an essay contest as part of its support of National Marina Day. The company offers a complete line of filtration, pollution prevention and spill response products utilizing MYCELX technology. Already a sponsor of the nationwide August 12, 2006 event, Centek also offers $100 to those who can best answer,
"What am I doing to be an environmentally-conscious boater?"
Essays 100 words or longer must be submitted to Centek by July 29. The best five entries will be awarded $100 on National Marina Day. A matching $100 contribution will also go to each author's local participating marina. Submissions can be mailed to PO Box 3028, Thomasville, GA 31799, faxed to 229-228-1270 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
"Environmental responsibility is key to boating's future. National Marina Day is an opportunity to educate boaters and marina owners about simple ways to protect our waters, and reward those who are already taking action," said Tony Watson, Centek product manager.
National Marina Day is in its fifth year. It is produced by the Association of Marina Industries.
