The Sea Tow Foundation has announced a deadline extension for its inaugural National Boating Industry Safety Awards from October 1 to October 7.

The awards are intended to recognize the best boating safety work in the for-profit sector of the recreational marine marketplace in the United States. They will be presented on November 22, the opening night of the New Elevate Summit in Orlando.

“We wanted to maximize the entry pool and provide as much time as possible fore boating industry organizations to participate,” Gail R. Kulp, Sea Tow Foundation executive director, said in a statement. “With a number of fall boat shows and industry events taking place, our North American Sober Skipper Advisory Council recommended that we extend the deadline so as many organizations as possible would have an opportunity to submit their best work.”

Nominations are being accepted for boating safety campaigns and efforts from August 15, 2018 through October 7, 2019. Applications can be downloaded at http://soberskipper.com/awards.

There are four categories for boating safety campaigns including those for manufacturers, retailers, media and general recreational boating initiatives.
