The Lake Placid Hall of Fame Committee is seeking nominations from residents of the Olympic region for 2014. The Hall of Fame began in 1983 and has inducted over 100 individuals, as well as the members of the 1948 U.S. Olympic four-man bobsled team and the 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team. Plaques, commemorating each member, are on display in the Olympic Center’s Hall of Fame, located in the Conference Center at Lake Placid.
To be nominated, individuals should be past or current residents of the Olympic region or have some significant connection to the area. All nominees must have made significant sports, cultural or civic contributions to the region, or their endeavors must have enhanced the historical heritage of the Olympic region – defined as Essex, Clinton and Franklin counties in New York State.
The deadline for nomination submissions is Monday, June 2. The annual induction banquet will be held in the fall.
The selection committee currently maintains a list of candidates who have been nominated in previous years. Nominations can only be considered if they are accompanied by a list of accomplishments relative to the purpose of the Hall of Fame.
Nominations may be sent to:
