NJ Top Ten Beaches Competition Halted

A popular contest to name the best beach at the Jersey shore is taking a time-out this summer.

The Top Ten Beaches contest will not have voting this year that pits one town against another for bragging rights at the shore.

Rather, the New Jersey Sea Grant Consortium says the program will focus on cooperation among regional tourism leaders as the shore recovers from Superstorm Sandy.

The contest began in 2008 as a way to generate pride in and stewardship of New Jersey’s beaches. People voted online for their favorite shore spot, and the results were unveiled at a pre-Memorial Day news conference.

This year’s voting will involve a calendar photo contest. People will be encouraged to share their favorite shore memories at www.toptenbeaches.org starting Wednesday.
