The non-profit BoatU.S. Foundation offers a no-cost Kid's Life Jacket Loaner Program, which gives boaters and parents the opportunity to borrow a children's life jacket for the day or weekend, and it is looking for photos of kids wearing Loaner Program life jackets. The best photos will be featured in a 2010 calendar. The foundation will also use some of the images to promote the popular program. Photos can be e-mailed to program manager Alanna Keating at AKeating@BoatUS.com

"Send us a photo and your child has an opportunity to be a role model for boating safety," said Keating.

:If you submit your entry by Sept. 30, you'll also be entered into a drawing to win a free custom photo book," she added.

In November, judges will select the best photos to be featured in the calendar that will be offered for sale on www.BoatUS.com/foundation. Proceeds from the calendar will help keep this life-saving program afloat.
