UPPER SADDLE RIVER, N.J., Oct. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Minwax®, the leading manufacturer of wood finishing and wood care products, announces the last call for entries for the 2013 Do Good With Wood Award™. The program is open to virtually anyone who has been involved in a wood finishing project that has helped the community – through DIY groups, craft or hobby groups, school woodshop classes, clubs, guilds, parent organizations, or simply on their own. First Prize is a $5,000 cash grant, a supply of Minwax® products, and a consultation with author and wood finishing expert Bruce Johnson. Second Prize is a cash grant of $2,000 and a supply of Minwax® products. The deadline for all submissions is December 31, 2013.
Past winners include a group of volunteers who used their woodworking skills to design and build therapy equipment for special needs students, a retiree who makes wooden toys for sick and abused children, and students in a high school carpentry program who built an entire new house for a low-income family.
"Every year, we see wonderful projects, large and small, submitted by volunteers who enjoy woodworking and wood finishing," said Janet Krakow, vice president, marketing, Sherwin-Williams Wood Care Products. "We encourage all those who have used their woodworking skills to improve their community – giving freely of their time and energy – to submit their project for consideration."
The winners will be announced in early spring 2014 and the names posted on the Minwax® website at minwax.com.
