The NMMA said nominations for the Manufacturing Institute's 2018 STEP Ahead Awards have been extended until Friday.

The Science, Technology, Engineering and Production Ahead Awards provide individuals and companies with a national platform to highlight female talent. To date, 672 women have been honored. The national award recognizes the strength of the U.S. manufacturing industry.

The National Marine Manufacturers Association is urging manufacturers to nominate a female peer or colleague for the award.

Last year's winners in the marine industry included Grady-White Boats president Kris Carroll, Brunswick Boat Group supply chain vice president Jan Morton, Mercury Marine project engineer Katelyn Vara, and Mercury Marine plant operation manager Marcea Weiss.

Past marine industry winners include Marcia Kull, Lori Melbostad, Ann Baldree and Joan Maxwell.
