Vote for an inspirational Young Scot

Young Scot, the national youth information and citizenship agency for Scotland, is urging people from across East Dunbartonshire to nominate young local heroes with inspiring stories for the Sunday Mail Young Scot Awards 2014.

They are on the lookout for young Scottish stars that have made a big impact in their local community and are encouraging people to nominate young people aged 11-26 years who have made a positive difference to the lives of others, before the nominations close on February 18.

There are 11 categories from sport, arts and health to enterprise, heritage and volunteering, where three finalists in each of the 11 categories will be selected and invited to the high profile awards ceremony in the SECC Glasgow Arena on April 10. The winners will be announced on the night.

Louise Macdonald, Chief Executive of Young Scot, said: “2014 is certainly going to be an exciting and momentous year with the eyes of the world on our nation. We want to share the spotlight and make sure young people’s achievements are centre stage.

“If you know a friend, someone in your youth group, brother, neighbour, any young person who you think has worked hard to improve the lives of others or their local community in East Dunbartonshire, we are urging you not to let their amazing achievements go unheard.

Get your nomination in and let’s make the Sunday Mail Young Scot Awards 2014 the biggest celebration of young people this country has ever seen.”

For further information and to nominate a young person or group, please visit before midnight on 18 February 2014.
