South Dakota Hall of Fame

The South Dakota Hall of Fame is an American award for excellence among South Dakotans. Established in 1974, the South Dakota State Legislature named the organization the state's official hall of fame in 1996.[1] The Hall is a museum detailing "acts of excellence", the host of an annual honors ceremony, a statewide K-12 South Dakota History Program, and a Visitor and Education Center in Chamberlain that opened in June 2000.[2] More than 700 South Dakotans have been inducted into the Hall of Fame, and their stories of excellence with supporting media are available online.
