Oct. 1 is the deadline to enter the BoatU.S. Recreational Boating Access Awards.

The program, now in its fourth year, is designed to recognize waterway access projects produced by individuals, local grassroots groups, marine businesses and local and state governments.

"We need to share the stories about who has succeeded in preserving or improving public waterway access and how they did it," BoatU.S. president Nancy Michelman said in a statement.

Examples of solutions could include creative public/private partnerships, changes in land-use planning or permitting processes, tax incentives, legislation or public ballots, publicity or public education. To be eligible, activities must have been undertaken in the last three years.

Winners will be announced by Oct. 31.
