The next galactic core-collapse supernova will deliver a wealth of neutrinos which for the first time humanity is well-situated to measure. These explosions produce neutrinos with energies between a few and 100 MeV over a period of tens of seconds. Galactic supernovae are relatively rare events, occurring with a frequency of just a few per century. It is therefore essential that all neutrino detectors capable of detecting these neutrinos are ready to trigger on this signal when it occurs. This talk summarizes the ongoing efforts to detect these neutrinos in the NOvA detectors, including the development of a supernova trigger, background rejection, and event reconstruction.
