New Jersey Hall of Fame Announces Top 50 Nominees for Class of 2019-2020

The New Jersey Hall of Fame (NJHOF) has announced 50 nominees in five categories for its Class of 2019-2020: Arts & Letters, Enterprise, Performing Arts, Public Service, and Sports. Public voting is now underway online at Everyone needs a hero, and the accomplishments of Garden State citizens span the pages of nearly every volume of American history. Until now, they have never existed side-by-side, in one place. The people we celebrate have overcome every imaginable obstacle and challenge. They have survived war, over- come the bleakness of poverty, conquered fear and disability and rebounded from untold rejections and failure. Please let your voice be heard and join the Public Vote in choosing this year's heroes- the New Jersey Hall Of Fame Class of 2019-2020 Nominees!

“We have inducted heroes from all walks of life into the New Jersey Hall of Fame,” said Jon F. Hanson, chairman of the NJHOF. “This year’s class of nominees reflect the varied accomplishments and backgrounds that have char- acterized the hall of fame since its formation.” The public is encouraged to visit the NJ Hall of Fame website to cast their vote for a nominee in each of the five categories listed below. Full biographies of the nominees, as well as online voting, can be found at The 12th class of inductees will be announced in July, and the virtual induction ceremony will take place in October.
