DEMA Requests Nominations for 2004 Reaching Out Awards


March 12, 2004----Today the Diving Equipment & Marketing Association announced that nominations for 2004’s Reaching Out Awards are now being accepted.  To nominate an individual you must fill out the nomination packet and submit it, along with supporting documents, to DEMA no later than 5:00 pm PST, April 16, 2004.

The Reaching Out Award was first presented in 1989 to recognize individuals who have made a significant contribution to the sport of diving by “reaching out” in some special way to improve the sport for everyone.  A significant contribution refers to an individual who has aided in the development, promotion or safety of scuba diving in the areas of education, science, travel, retailing, photography, publishing, manufacturing, environmental issues or recreational diving on an industry-wide level.


Since its inception the Reaching Out Award has become more than recognition of these individual achievements, it has become the industry’s HALL OF FAME.  These are the leaders and heroes of our sport.


The Diving Equipment & Marketing Association is a global, non-profit organization comprised of more than 1,300 members.  DEMA’s mission is to promote sustainable growth in recreational diving and snorkeling while protecting the underwater environment.  For information about DEMA or to schedule an interview, please contact Nicole Russell, DEMA Association Coordinator at (858) 616-6408 or
