N.J. academy searching for best baby Springsteen

    A New Jersey early childhood academy is looking for fans who drool over Bruce Springsteen — literally.

    The Learning Experience is holding a Bruce Springsteen look-alike contest for babies Thursday at its location in Freehold, where the Boss grew up.
    Children up to 6 years old can compete for a first-place prize of $500 and a free month of childcare at the Freehold academy. All they have to do is their best Springsteen impression, while wearing a costume that represents an era of The Boss’s career.

    Organizers say more than 20 children had been signed up for the event so far.
