Interlux seeks entries for annual waterfront grants

The 2012 Interlux Waterfront Challenge is under way and community organizations are urged to apply now. Interlux will award $50,000 in October to recognize projects undertaken this year that create sustainable waterfront environmental improvements in their communities.

The deadline for completing projects is Sept. 2. Eight awards ranging from $4,500 to $20,000 will be presented to groups in the United States, 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 seven regional winners to be awarded $4,500 each and a grand-prize winner to be awarded $20,000. Awards will be made in October at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
