Everyone Needs a Hero – Tell Us About Yours

Everyone needs a hero, and the Garden State is home to some of the world’s greatest 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. Your heroes will be featured at our Entertainment and Learning Center at the American Dream Complex in East Rutherford, on social media, and on our website. The American Dream exhibit will highlight the stories of New Jerseyans who have realized their dreams and achieved incredible accolades, regardless of the adversities that they’ve faced on the path to greatness.

The New Jersey Hall of Fame is where you want your heroes to be, and now, they can be! Submit your story – or the story of someone who inspires you – to be featured among our Jersey legends. We accept photo, video, and text content.
