The IBWSS Media Campaign Contest showcases the outreach efforts of organizations, agencies, and groups in the realm of boating and water safety.

It is hosted by the National Safe Boating Council (NSBC), National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA), and the National Water Safety Congress (NWSC). It recognizes the creative ways boating and water safety advocates are communicating with the public about safety on and in the water. Winners were announced during the 2019 International Boating and Water Safety Summit, and received a certificate recognizing their great work. The First Place Winners in each category will receive a discount certificate towards their 2019 IBWSS registration.

The deadline has passed for the #IBWSS18 Media Campaign Contest.
