East Brunswick Vo-Tech Student Who Won the Statewide Award for Poetry on Youth Voting to be Joined by Attorney General to Record PSA about Young People and Voting

New Jersey Attorney General Peter C. Harvey will be joined by East Brunswick Vocational Technical High School student James Prendergast, winner of the Attorney General’s “BE POWERFUL, BE HEARD” Spoken Word Competition, to tape a pro-voting Public Service Announcement (PSA).

Prendergast was selected from 15 finalists statewide who competed for the opportunity to star in the new “BE POWERFUL, BE HEARD” PSA by reciting original, spoken word creations focused on the significance of voting. The competition took place during the Attorney General’s Hip-Hop Summit II in Trenton on September 30.

The PSA is being taped and will air before the General Election on November 8, to encourage young people to vote on Election Day.
