The Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation awarded five education grants to youth-focused boating, fishing and conservation organizations.

"We believe that the best way to get kids and their families hooked on boating and fishing is to get them out on the water doing just that," said RBFF Frank Peterson, president and CEO, in a statement. "We're thrilled about all the great hands-on activities that our 2009 grant recipients are offering and look forward to working with them to put more than 140,000 kids through our education programs this year."

The 2009 National Youth Fishing & Boating Initiative grant recipients include FishHer - Fishing Gear for Women, the International Game Fish Association, Let's Go Fishing, the National Recreation & Park Association and Trout Unlimited.

A key requirement of RBFF's National Youth Fishing & Boating Initiative, which awards education grants annually, includes introducing boating and fishing to minorities and underserved communities. Special consideration is given to programs that offer multiple on-the-water learning opportunities, encourage long-term involvement of participants, provide training for instructors, promote conservation and support existing RBFF partnerships.
