WIN $1,000: Celebrate The Everyday Hero In Your Life (SWEEPSTAKES)

Throughout our history books and daily news headlines alike, it’s easy to spot whom our heroes are in the world.

But what of those who operate on a smaller scale, working behind-the-scenes or simply doing their part in our daily lives to make the world a better place? While their actions are no less remarkable, they may not always receive the same recognition — and we’re here to change that.

In the upcoming film, "Lee Daniels' The Butler" (in theaters Aug. 16), audiences will get an inside look at the life of Cecil Gaines, the White House butler who served eight presidents from 1952 to 1986 and saw firsthand the racial and political tides of change in our nation’s history.

It’s a tale of the unsung hero helping our national heroes, and we’ve partnered with The Weinstein Company to help celebrate those in our own everyday lives — big and small, friends and family — who have made an impact.

See sweepstakes form below to share your photos of the special hero in your life and tell us how they’ve made a difference to you or to others for a chance to win $1,000 (five winners) or $100 (200 winners).

Our call for submissions is now closed! Thanks to all who entered.
