Everyone Needs a Hero – Tell Us About Yours

Everyone needs a hero, and the Garden State is home to some of the world’s most inspirational stories – both big and small. As we’ve learned through the concept of Areté, anyone can actualize their highest sense of self with moral excellence of character.

Who do you feel is brave, determined, and dedicated? Who is the person who inspires you to be your best? Who has guided you to overcome your obstacles? We’d like to hear about them! (Your hero does not need to be famous; they could be someone you know personally.)

Your hero may be featured at New Jersey Hall of Fame’s Entertainment and Learning Center’s Everyone Needs a Hero Exhibit at the American Dream Complex in East Rutherford, on social media, and on our website.

The New Jersey Hall of Fame is where you want your heroes to be, and now, they have a chance to be!

Submit the story of someone who inspires you – to be featured among our Jersey legends. We accept all formats of photo, video, and text content.
