How to Nominate


Nominations close each year on Aug. 1. The Board of Directors reviews the nominations to determine who will be considered for nomination. Final selections are made in December. To submit a nomination, please complete the official nomination form. Also, please email an approximate 125-word bio on the nominee to Don Fish at dfish@ncsportshalloffame.org. Policy requires that an inductee attend the induction banquet and other activities in person, unless deceased, to be enshrined into the Hall.
