TRENTON - A campaign promoting Sandy recovery efforts along the Jersey Shore is launching a contest for musical artists to create an original song to become New Jersey's summer anthem.
Submission of song entries to the Jersey Shore Soundoff began Monday. The contest was created by Stronger Than the Storm, a statewide campaign that has been touting tourism in an effort to bring visitors to the area for the first summer after Sandy devastated many beach areas.
Solo artists and bands have four weeks to submit online videos of performances to be voted on by the public. The winner will perform at a Sept. 7 concert at the Shore alongside a music act that has not yet been determined.
