It's already been an awesome summer here at the Jersey Shore, and we certainly have the hard work and dedication of South Jersey lifeguards to thank for keeping our pools, lakes, and beaches safe. They're the real summer heroes, and one of the best ways you can thank them is by voting for your favorite!

Our job of narrowing down the finalists was not easy, and we thank everyone who nominated a lifeguard. As much as we would love to give everyone the grand prize, it is up to YOU to decide who ultimately wins!

Just a reminder, if you're voted South Jersey's Favorite Lifeguard 2019, we'll be hooking you up with a pair of tickets to see Shawn Mendes at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia on Wednesday, August 28th, 2019.

Plus, you'll arrive in style with a limo ride to the show, courtesy of Joe's Limousine Service! You'll also receive a $100 gift card for dinner at Boathouse Restaurant and Marina Deck in Wildwood, and a commemorative plaque from Pineland Engraving recognizing your awesome achievement.

Check out all of our awesome finalists in the gallery, then cast your vote in the poll below. Click on the photo for the lifeguard's name/town. You can vote once per hour.

Voting ends Wednesday, July 24th at 11:59 pm EST. Winner will be announced on Thursday, July 25th. 

*Contest is for New Jersey residents only. Finalists MUST currently be a lifeguard in one of the following counties - Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Ocean.
