"We are looking for creative, unique and innovative nominees who have had a real impact," said Susan Shingledecker, Director of Environmental Programs with the BoatU.S. Foundation. "This award, for example, could go to a group that has cleaned up miles of beaches, a hometown marina that has led the way in helping keep our waterways clean or a boat or fishing club member who has spearheaded a local environmental education campaign" she added.
Applications and more information about the award can be found online at http://www.BoatUS.com/Foundation, or contact Ms. Shingledecker at SShingledecker@BoatUS.com, or telephone 703-461-2878, ext. 8358.
The BoatU.S. Foundation for Boating Safety and Clean Water is a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit education and research organization primarily funded by the voluntary contributions of the 650,000 members of BoatU.S. The Foundation operates more than a dozen programs including the only accredited, free, online general boating safety course, a low-cost EPIRB rental program, the "Help Stop the Drops" national clean fueling campaign, a free kid's Life Jacket Loaner Program, and has awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants for nonprofit groups for boating safety and environmental projects.
