Milwaukee River Skimmer Naming Contest

Win three months of Time Warner digital cable, Road Runner and digital phone or a fabulous night in downtown Milwaukee and kayak the rivers simply by entering the naming contest for MMSD’s new river skimmer.

The skimmer cleans up thousands of pounds of garbage, tree branches and logs from Milwaukee waterways, helping to create a positive image and experience for tourists and residents who visit the many shops, restaurants, theaters and bars located on or near the water in downtown Milwaukee. The new skimmer will use one-third less fuel and be able to collect twice as much as previous skimmers.

To raise awareness of the new vessel and its capabilities, a naming contest will be launched on from April 2 through April 14.

In mid May, the winner will be announced at a boat launch party with random drawings for prizes. Click here for the official rules.
