MONTCLAIR, NJ - The man who made the phrase, "Yo, dog..." famous will be live at Montclair State University. Randy Jackson, former American Idol competition judge, will be a judge at a pitch competition on May 6, held in the University Hall 7th floor conference center.

Free and open to the public, ten teams of students will compete for a $10,000 prize as part of the MSU annual student pitch competition called TeleBrands Inventors Day for Aspiring Entrepreneurs.

 Students from the Feliciano Center entrepreneurship classes have been working for a full year to brainstorm an innovative idea to solve a real-world problem, test and validate the solution, and develop a plan to market and pitch the idea.
