The Waterfront Challenge - calling all sailors

'Waterfront Challenge'    .

The Waterfront Cleanup Project Awards, sponsored by Interlux in the USA, is a program that many other countries, who don't yet have such a program, could emulate.

The USA-based 2012 Interlux Waterfront Challenge is underway and community organizations should apply now.


A total of $50,000 will be awarded by Interlux in October to recognize projects undertaken this year that create sustainable waterfront environmental improvements in their communities.

The deadline for completion of projects is September 2.

Eight awards from $4,500 to $20,000 will be presented to groups in the U.S., Canada and the Caribbean.

A five-judge panel of marine industry leaders who share a passion for protecting our waters - with the help of boaters voting on Facebook for their favorite projects among the finalists - will select 7 regional winners to be awarded $4,500 each and a grand prize winner to be awarded $20,000. Awards will be made at the Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show in October, 2012.
