The deadline for community organizations to apply for a 2011 Interlux Waterfront Challenge grant is Aug. 31, the company announced.

In October, Interlux will award $50,000 in grants to organizations that create sustainable waterfront environmental improvements in their communities. Eight grants ranging from $4,500 to $20,000 will be awarded to groups in the United States, Canada and the Caribbean.

A five-judge panel of marine industry leaders, with the help of boaters voting on Facebook, will select seven regional winners to be awarded grants of $4,500 each and a grand-prize winner to be awarded a grant of $20,000.

Grant awards will be made at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
