The Ellis Island Medals of Honor rank among America’s most prestigious awards, recognizing both naturalized and native-born Americans for their outstanding commitment to serving the nation. Tasked with amplifying the impact of this event for the Ellis Island Honors Society Medal of Honor Award 30th Anniversary, we crafted an unforgettable celebration that honored the achievements of the awardees and set a new standard for the ceremony.

Over 12 million immigrants arrived in America via Ellis Island before its closure in 1954. The Great Hall, which once served as an immigrant processing center, now hosts the prestigious Ellis Island Medals of Honor Awards. Notable recipients include Ronald Reagan, Muhammad Ali, and Paula Abdul.

For the 30th Anniversary of the Ellis Island Honors Society, we focused on enhancing the visual and emotional impact of the ceremony to deliver a breathtaking Medal of Honor show that highlighted the honorees’ extraordinary contributions. The event featured key elements now synonymous with the ceremony, including elegantly styled decor, a joint service color guard, and the music of the 82nd Airborne Division Choir set to a dazzling fireworks display.

The Ellis Island Honors Society anniversary event was such a success we’ve returned to Ellis Island’s National Museum of Immigration many times since, with new and innovative ways to bring the show to life – and honor those who’ve had a profound impact on our society.
