Halls of fame have been created by several users in the Duolingo discussion forums, to recognize individual achievements. As well as a number of halls of fame for general achievement on Duolingo, there are also a number of language specific halls of fame. These halls of fame are all unofficial - at least one (The Golden Owl Hall of Fame) was started in protest that no such official page exists.

The halls of fame are to recognize extraordinary achievements on Duolingo.
The Golden Owl Hall of Fame recognizes when a user has completed a language tree. AlexisLinguist wrote: "The GOHOF began in August 2014 as a petition to Duolingo to add acknowledgements of finished courses to user profiles". It was passed on to thraenthraen on July 1, 2015, as AlexisLinguist was going on hiatus and would not be able to keep up the GOHOF.
The One year+ streak Hall of Fame honours users who have met their daily goal every day for a year, and thus have a streak of 365 days or more. jitengore wrote: "The community will benefit, draw inspiration and motivation by being able to find all the members of this club".
The "Junior" Streak Hall of Fame attempts to "encourage people to go longer and keep their streak going!" on their way to entering jitengore's One year+ streak Hall of Fame.
The Level 25 Hall of Fame "honour[s] those Duo-ers who have managed to attain Level 25, the gold standard of Duolingo fabulousness, in one or more languages ;-)".
The Hall of Fame for Users with 100,000XP+ honours "the users who have surpassed 100,000 XP, in other words, the people who have the most XP on Duolingo."
The language specific Halls of Fame acknowledge various achievements, such as complete trees and reaching level 25.
