Voting under way in BoatUS life-jacket contestPosted on
Voting is open in the BoatUS Foundation’s Teen’s Afloat Program, which offers discounted vest-style life jackets – at just $5 – to non-profit organizations providing on-the-water educational programming for young adults.
Twenty-two local non-profit groups — from summer camps and sailing clubs to YMCA and Scouting groups — are entered in the contest to win the life jackets.
“Our hope is that we can help these groups get access to discounted life jackets and also rally community support for their programs,” BoatUS Foundation program manager Alanna Keating said in a statement.
Made possible through a donation from the National Marine Bankers Association, the program targets groups offering on-the-water programs. The life jackets are Type III vests, which normally retail for about $30.
Voting ends May 15.
