The Interlux Waterfront Challenge returns in 2012 and will award a total of $50,000 to organizations that create sustainable waterfront environmental improvements in their communities. A five-judge panel of marine industry professionals—with the help of boaters voting on Facebook for their favorite projects—will select seven regional winners to be awarded $4,500 each and a grand-prize winner to be awarded $20,000.
“We are pleased to be able to continue with the Waterfront Challenge in 2012,” said Elenor Ekman, Interlux North America’s marketing manager. “Some outstanding waterfront improvement projects were recognized by our judging panel last year and we look forward to supporting even more sustainable projects this year.”
The application deadline is Aug. 31, 2012. Awards will be announced at the Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show in October.
