This award is given to the best first time exhibitor at a BNAPEX. It was established in 1964, and was renamed the Order of the Beaver (OTB) Novice Award in 2010.
For BNAPEX 1950, the New York Group (a BNAPS group that formed in 1944 and met once a month in New York City) donated an award for an exhibit that had never won an award in an international or national show. There was no Novice Award given between 1950 and 1964.
