About the Awards

The Steel Valley Hall of Fame began in 2008 as an effort to honor current and former historical and contemporary residents of the Steel Valley who have achieved outstanding accomplishments in the arts, sciences, sports, business, and community service.  The 2020 class will be the fourth class inducted into the Steel Valley Hall of Fame.

The Campbell Courage Award began in 2011. This award was started by Bill Campbell in honor of his brother, Jim Campbell.  The award honors a local sports individual who made an outstanding contribution to his/her community impacting countless individuals. The Campbell Courage Award was previously housed at the Heinz History Center. Because the Campbell family are natives of Homestead, it brings special meaning and pride to the residents of the Steel Valley to host this prestigious award alongside the Steel Valley Hall of Fame inductees.
