Queen Latifah, Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi … the New Jersey Hall of Fame has star power that you will find exciting and engaging.

It also provides effective opportunities to teach young people about our State’s history, to introduce them to the voting process, to build leadership skills, and to boost pride in themselves and their community.

We would love to see this funding go to teachers in New Jersey, so we encourage you to enter for a chance to win. After all, you can’t win if you don’t enter. If this were an infomercial, we would write, “Wait! There’s more!” Indeed, there is. Teachers enter by simply creating a Wish List at http://ClassWish.org. That Wish List also attracts tax-deductible contributions from people who care about kids, and many companies match employees’ donations, which can double ─ or even triple ─ their funding.
