NJ Hall of Fame  
There will be a museum built shortly regarding the heroes of NJ. This NJ Hall of Fame is currently accepting votes for the 2007 inductees from five categories: Historical, General, Sports, Arts & Entertainment, and Science and Technology. Not all the nominees are NJ born and those who were born in NJ don't necessarily still live here (if they are still alive). It's definitely a pretty good mix.

The mission of the NJHF is to "honor our citizens who have made invaluable contributions to society and the world beyond. The Hall of Fame also wants to send a message to children that they can and should strive for excellence in any endeavor of their choosing. By offering them role models, we also hope and trust that the Hall of Fame will become a source of inspiration and hope for all New Jersey children."

Who will be paying for this museum? Well, right now plans are to raise all monies through private donations. We will see if that works out. Considering that NJ legislation created it and it's under the auspices of the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority (NJSEA), it's already wrapped in NJ politics. But then again... we do need something NJ-specific for tourists to visit.
