New Jersey 101.5 is teaming up with American Senior Magazine for "Salute to Seniors" — your chance to make sure the senior in your life is celebrated the way he or she deserves to be.

Each week, Judi Franco will be highlighting a senior from New Jersey who played a part in making the state such a great place to live. We're going to need every audience member to pitch in, so think about a senior you know — a parent, a grandparent, even an acquaintance who deserves a special thanks.

Tell us about your senior below. Submissions will be accepted from Aug. 21 through Nov. 21. Individual seniors will be selected by our staff once a week starting Sept. 4.

If your senior is chosen, he or she will be invited to New Jersey 101.5 for an upcoming commercial and invited to a luncheon at the the station. In addition, the featured senior will receive a $50 gift card to use at an area mall, along with a one year subscription to American Senior magazine.
