Interlux Yacht Finishes is once again sponsoring the 2011 Interlux Waterfront Challenge grant competition. The competition will award up to US $50,000 in grants in October to organizations that create sustainable waterfront environmental improvements in their communities.
Seven grants of US $4,500 will be awarded to groups in Canada, the US or the Caribbean. One grand prizewinner will be awarded a grant of $20,000. Applicants must apply before August 31.
A five-judge panel of marine industry leaders as well as boaters voting on Facebook for their favorite projects among the applications will select the seven regional winners to be awarded the US $4,500 grants. The grant awards will be made at the Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show, which is scheduled to run from October 27 to 31 inclusive.
