The Jersey Shore has a big contestant that has been nominated for a People's Choice Awards!

Wow -- we feel so famous, right?

But it's not necessarily a person or even an attraction that is nominated.

The 3-mile long gateway to Long Beach Island known as the Route 72 Manahawkin Causeway is nominated for America's Transportation Awards which is a category at the PCAs. I didn't even know that was a thing...who knew?!

According to NJ.com, the nomination is for, "'contact 4' of the massive project that included building a new bridge next to the old causeway and rehabilitating to old set of spans after the new one was open."

I'm not 100% sure what that means but it sounds impressive. LOL.

The winner will bring home $10,000 for their agency which can be used for a number of things: a charitable donation, scholarships and more!
