Sometimes, heroes and heroines walk among us and we don’t even know who they are. They can make outstanding contributions to their schools and communities even though they are often overlooked under traditional student recognition guidelines.

Unsung heroes and heroines can be people who make their school a better place because of their warm personality, their empathy and concern for others. They tend not to let obstacles stop them.

NJSBA would like to recognize some of the unsung heroes and heroines among students in New Jersey for the 2020-2021 school year. Instead of the traditional in-person programs, the NJSBA compiled videos honoring the achievements of the students. The video can be seen here.
