Kid's life jacket photo contest ends soon

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

"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 Proceeds from the calendar will help keep this life-saving program afloat.
