The 15th Annual New Jersey Hall of Fame (NJHOF) ceremony is scheduled to occur at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) in Newark, New Jersey later this year.

Now, the public is being asked to cast their vote up until Friday, May 19th to help decide who will be inducted into the class of 2023.

The NJHOF recently announced 50 nominees for the 2023 public vote in five categories: Arts & Letters, Enterprise, Performing Arts, Public Service, and Sports.

Although every name on the list is special to the state of New Jersey, there are several people nominated this year that are favorites to most across the country and even worldwide.

From Anthony Bourdain, Paul Rudd, George Segal, and Joe Walsh, to Tiki Barber, each and every nominee has a reason to be placed on the ballot.

“We are honored to spotlight the wealth of successful and talented individuals in our state,” said Jon F. Hanson, Chairman of the NJHOF in a press release. “Each year we develop this list of remarkable nominees, we come away more inspired and influenced by the power of New Jerseyans.”

The final inductees will be officially announced in July with a ceremony set for October. Everyone will have a chance to be a part of the special event as it will also be streamed on multiple platforms.
