We are pleased to announce that nominations for the 16th Annual Spirit of Oliver Awards are now open, and will be open until 4:30pm on March 23rd, 2021.
During these trying times it’s more important than ever to come together as a community and recognize individuals that are dedicated to making a difference in Oliver.
There are five categories for nominations:

Outstanding Community Group – to recognize a community group that has demonstrated an outstanding contribution to the community.
Community Roots – to recognize individuals or groups that may have settled in greater Oliver following the establishment of the Fairview Townsite and surrounding areas including Osoyoos Indian Band lands.
Community Builder – to recognize an individual or group that through voluntary activities have left a legacy that builds and improves our community and will enhance the quality of life of children, youth and families within greater Oliver.
Individual Adult or Couple – to recognize the volunteer work of an individual adult or couple who have contributed significantly through voluntary service involving a variety of projects, groups and/or programs.
Last year we were only able to have a small celebration for the award recipients. Details for hosting the 2021 event will be provided at a later date to ensure the appropriate COVID-19 protocols are followed to celebrate the recipients.
Full details and nomination forms can be found on the Town of Oliver website. We encourage you to submit your nominations early.
