Johnny Olsen's Youngster's Hall of Fame - This award was given during the "Kid's of the Week" segment on the variety talent series KIDS AND COMPANY/DUM/1951-53. Hosted by a young Johnny "Come on Down" Olsen, the Junior Chamber of Commerce honored children who had demonstrated great courage and determination. The winner was flown to the show and presented with his/her award on-the-air.

In its second year, additional awards were given to children who had overcome handicaps or performed amazing feats such as a boy who seized the steering wheel of a school bus when the driver fainted; a child battling with muscular dystrophy; and a recovering juvenile burn victim who was set on fire by a gang of hoodlums. The program was sponsored by Red Goose Shoes.
