The BoatU.S. Foundation for Boating Safety and Clean Water is asking powerboaters, sailors and anglers to vote for their favorite new life jacket in the Innovation in Life Jacket Design Competition.
To view the life jacket submissions, including video footage of prototype demonstrations, visit the foundation's Facebook page at www.Facebook.com/BoatUSFoundation.
Online voting ends Feb. 28.
Entries also will be judged by a panel of boating safety experts, who will evaluate the designs based on innovation, wearability, value/affordability, reliability, versatility and practicality.
Finalists will get a chance to showcase their life jackets at the International Boating and Water Safety Summit in Savannah, Ga. The winner will receive a $5,000 award.
