The Young Scot Awards are designed to recognise and celebrate the achievements of young people and groups aged 11 to 26 throughout Scotland who make a difference to the lives of others in their community and country. There are twelve categories against which a young person or group can be nominated, including health, community, the arts and diversity. Three nominees from each category are shortlisted for attendance at the Awards ceremony.
The finalists and winners are selected by a panel of judges consisting of representatives of the organisations involved in the Awards, and also traditionally a government minister and at least two youth representatives, one of whom also chairs the judging panel.
Nominations generally open in early January each year and are open for 6 - 8 weeks, with the Awards ceremony taking place in April. For more information see www.youngscotawards.com
Any young person or group of young people in Scotland aged 11 to 26
Nominations must demonstrate that the achievements of the young person are outstanding, inspirational or of benefit to their community. There is consideration given to the scale of the achievement relative to the young person's background.
