New Jersey Hall of Fame: More than a Celebration
New curriculum will excite, inspire, and motivate your students
Queen Latifah, Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi … the New Jersey Hall of Fame has star power that you will find exciting and engaging. But since the inception of the Hall of Fame a few years ago, teachers have found that it provides more than just a celebration of great New Jerseyans. 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. As New Jersey teachers prepare young people to pursue their dreams and strive to accomplish great things, a new curriculum developed with the New Jersey Hall of Fame, provides some creative lesson plans to do just that.

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.
