Nominate for this year’s Young Scot Awards

Iain Gray MSP is urging East Lothian residents to consider nominating young people from their local community in this year’s Young Scot Awards.

These annual awards seek to recognise the contribution of individual or groups of young people who go the extra mile to help others and make a difference in their communities or in a particular area of life.

Since being launched in 2006, they have been Scotland’s only national awards for the young people of Scotland and this year the Young Scot team are once again seeking nominations for awards to celebrate the inspirational contributions of young Scots.

Previous local award winners include local hidden disabilities campaigner Grace Warnock from Prestonpans, who won in the health category at the 2017 awards.

Iain Gray MSP said:

“There are many outstanding and inspirational young people in East Lothian doing some amazing things in and for their local communities and to help local people. The Young Scot Awards are a great chance to recognise the contribution of some of these young people and it would be great to see them represented this year, so please get nominating!”

The awards cover 14 different categories including education, sport and entertainment, and nominations can be made until 14th February
