Ellis Island Medals of Honor Awards
The Ellis Island Honors Society recognizes first and second-generation Americans who have distinguished themselves through significant personal, professional, or philanthropic and humanitarian efforts on behalf of our nation. In 2016, they approached us looking for a team who could up the ante, produce an impactful awards ceremony, and execute it flawlessly.
For the Honors Society’s 30th Anniversary, we helped them create a spectacular show that highlighted honorees’ contributions in a visually impactful and meaningful way. It was a tremendous success and now, each year, we return to Ellis Island’s National Museum of Immigration with new and innovative ways to bring the show to life. There are key elements that have become synonymous with the show such as elegantly styled decor, a joint service color guard, the 82nd Airborne Division Choir who kick-off the festivities set to a dazzling display of fireworks. Marvin Scott, the perennial host, and 12-time Emmy Award-winning journalist, always presides over the celebration with a charismatic co-host.
These awards are presented annually to 100 outstanding citizens and have included notable figures such as Paula Abdul, Rita Moreno, and Dr. Sanjay Gupta.
Our production expertise and show management skills have truly helped elevate this awards ceremony, making it a truly outstanding experience, worthy of the individuals being honored.
