The BoatU.S. Foundation's Kid's Life Jacket Loaner Program will loan out life jackets more than 90,000 times this year at no cost at more than 500 locations across the nation.

Now, the national, non-profit group needs help in creating a 2010 photo calendar with images of children wearing the life jackets and staying safe on the water.

The contest is simple. Borrow a free life jacket from one of the BoatU.S. Foundation's Kid's Life Jacket Loaner Program sites, snap a picture of your child in the jacket and upload it to the foundation page on Facebook (or e-mail it to AKeating@BoatUS.com).

In November, judges will select the best photos to be featured in a 2010 BoatUS Foundation calendar. The organization also plans to use some of the images to continue to promote the program, which allows parents and boaters to borrow for free a right-sized life jacket for the day or weekend.
