The National Park Service announced today the Bodie Island Lighthouse is competing for funding through the JELD-WEN Reliable Lighthouse Restoration Initiative. The winner of the competition will receive new JELD-WEN windows and doors and park management is encouraging interested parties to vote on line at http://www.jeld-wen.com/lighthouse/.

In late spring of 2008, Bodie Island Lighthouse was named one of 12 lighthouse finalists from among 49 nominees in the competition. If voted the winner, the Bodie Island Lighthouse would receive eight new windows and a door. This replacement effort would be a much needed boost to critical aspects of the Lighthouse which are in need of repairs.

Those interested in assisting with the preservation and restoration of this national treasure should cast their vote online. The winning lighthouse will be posted on the Jeld-Wen website on September 7, 2008. For more information, call 252-473-2111 ext. 148.
