About the Hall of Fame

The purpose of the Hall of Fame is to recognize the accomplishments of the many athletes competing in and promoting Senior Olympics at the local, regional, state and national level.

Each year since its inception in 2007 (with the exception of 2011), Ohio Senior Olympics has inducted a class into the Hall of Fame . The new class is inducted into the Hall of Fame during a banquet held during the state Senior Olympic competition.


Who Can Be Nominated?

The Ohio Senior Olympics Hall of Fame includes nominees in two categories:
Olympic Athlete and
Meritorious Service.

Individuals considered for this recognition should have achieved local, state and/ or national success in their chosen event.

The nomination form for both the athlete and meritorious service award are in the Resources section.


How Is Someone Nominated?

To nominate an individual for either of the awards:

  1. Complete the appropriate nomination form (athlete or meritorious service), providing the most complete information possible;
  2. Include all appropriate supporting documentation (newspaper articles, testimonials, photographs, athletic records, etc.);
  3. Mail the above requested items to:
