- NOIA Hall of Fame -

The NOIA Hall of Fame was established in 1999 to highlight Italian-Americans in the fields of Education/Community Service, Medicine, Sports, Business, Religion, and Government. These awards are presented each year at the NOIA Gala. Originally an annual award, we now honor inductees every 5 years.
