These now-defunct annual awards ran from 1968-1993. They were first called the Wattie Awards. When the Wattie Company merged with Goodman Fielder, the Wattie Awards became the Goodman Fielder Wattie Book Awards. First, second and third place were awarded. Books were not divided by genre but competed in a single category. In 1994, the Award was continued under the new name "Montana Book Awards" at which time the awards were made in three categories: fiction, non-fiction and poetry. The first-place winners of the annual Goodman Fielder Wattie Book Award are shown in the following table.
