The BoatU.S. Foundation plans to honor those who have made a significant contribution toward improving waterway health, and educating boaters on how to minimize their environmental impact, with its 2009 environmental leadership award.

Any group, organization, company, marina or individual who has worked hard to make a difference is eligible for the 2009 BoatU.S. Foundation Environmental Leadership Award.

The recipient receives $1,000 to help continue its environmental efforts. The deadline to apply is June 30.

"We are looking for nominees who have had a real impact," said Susan Shingledecker, assistant vice president and director of environmental programs for the BoatU.S. Foundation for Boating Safety and Clean Water. "For example, the award could go to a group that has cleaned up miles of beaches, a hometown marina that has led the way in helping keep our waterways clean, or a boat club member who has spearheaded a local environmental education campaign."

Applications and information about the award are available at the group's Web site. Any questions can be directed to Shingledecker.
