University helps Montclair 'Bring Back the 4th'

On June 2, the Office of University and Community Relations asked the campus community to help the Township of Montclair "Bring Back the 4th" by participating in township's effort to earn a $10,000 grant from Liberty Mutual for its Fourth of July celebration.

We are happy to announce that Montclair is one of 10 communities to receive a $10,000 grant. Voters were asked to take a brief online quiz and enter the township as a recipient. According to Liberty Mutual, tens of thousands of Americans took the Responsible Moments in U.S. History Quiz. The towns with the highest quiz participation won a $10,000 grant.
