The Oliver Good Citizen Award was donated in 1950 by the Junior Chamber of Commerce.

First Recipient was Harold Wright

In 1961 the Junior Chamber of Commerce ceased to exist, and the trophy was reintroduced in 1966 by the Oliver Board of Trade, later to be renamed "Oliver Chamber of Commerce".

In 1990 it was decided to make two presentations; one to honour the pioneers who have helped to establish our  community and the other to honour our more recent good citizens.

Hence two plaques: "The Citizen Award" and "The Pioneer Award".
