(NAPSI)—A self-taught entrepreneur who gives back by teaching underprivileged kids his woodworking skills; a group of retirees who work all year on toys for the holidays; a high school class that saves a beloved tree by turning it into a favorite gathering place: They all do good with wood, improving their communities and enjoying the satisfaction that comes with a job well done.

If you or someone you know used woodworking and wood finishing to improve the community, Minwax wants to recognize those good works with the Do Good With Wood Award.

This award program is open to virtually anyone involved in a wood finishing project-through individual effort, DIY groups, craft or hobby groups, school wood shop classes, clubs or guilds.

The Grand Prize is $5,000 in cash, a workshop with wood finishing expert Bruce Johnson, and a supply of products valued at $1,000. The Second Prize is $2,000 in cash plus a supply of Minwax products.

For more information on how to enter or to submit your entry online, visit www.minwax.com. Deadline for submissions is December 31, 2013.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
