Nominations for the 2009 BoatU.S. Foundation Environmental Leadership Award are due June 30.
The award honors those who have made significant contributions toward improving waterway health and educating boaters about environmental issues. It will be presented to a group, organization, company, marina or individual who has worked to make a difference.
The winner receives $1,000 to help with their environmental efforts.
"Look around you, and you may find a person, business or local organization who has made a real impact," said Susan Shingledecker, director of environmental programs for the BoatU.S. Foundation for Boating Safety and Clean Water, in a statement.
"For example, the award could go to a group that has cleaned up miles of beaches, a hometown marina that has led the way in helping keep our waterways clean, or a boat club member who has spearheaded a local environmental education campaign," she added.
