As part of West Marine's mission to reduce its impact on the environment, it continues to search for innovative green products and will award a grand prize of $10,000 to a designated official winner at the 2011 Miami International Boat Show.

The competition is free and open to individuals, manufacturers, distributors and/or inventors of boating products. Judges will select the winner on the basis of the product's effectiveness, environmental impact, degree of innovation and cost-effectiveness.
