NOvA experiment utilizes a data acquisition system based on a continuous  deadtime-less readout of the front-end electronics. Performing physical analyses requires a triggering system, which can select the relevant events in this data flow.      The NOvA Data Driven Trigger system analyzes all the data collected by the NOvA  detectors in real time using hundreds of parallel instances of highly optimized analysis software running within ARTDAQ framework.      This talk is focused on the description on NOvA triggering system  and gives a description of a trigger for detection of the neutrino signal  from supernova explosion in our Galaxy.
