Only one week remains to cast a ballot for the fourth annual Canoe & Kayak Awards, which concludes on July 21. A production of Canoe & Kayak magazine, each year the C&K Awards recognize the world's best in the sport of paddling, as voted on by the paddling community.
Last month, C&K asked readers to nominate the athletes, expeditions, causes and adventures that best represent the sport of paddling. A panel of accomplished paddlers and C&K editors reviewed the resulting list and selected the nominees for Male and Female Paddler of the Year, Expedition of the Year Presented by Nexen Tire, Paddle With Purpose, and the Spirit of Adventure Award.
The final decision is now in the hands of the paddling community. Visit CKAwards.com/vote before July 21 to see all of the nominees and cast your vote. All voters are automatically entered to win gear from Level Six, NRS, and MTI
The awards presentation and celebration will take place on Aug. 5 at Pierpont Place in Salt Lake City, during the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market trade show. At the event, the Dream Your Adventure $10,000 Expedition Award presented by Nexen Tire will also be presented to one lucky applicant to fund the paddling trip they've always dreamed of taking.
