A special online ceremony will be held for this year's awards
Nominations are being sought for Scotland’s most inspiring youngsters.
The Sunday Mail Young Scot Awards 2021 recognise the contributions made by young people to all aspects of our communities – from sport and the arts, through to enterprise and volunteering.
Nominations are now open on youngscotawards.com, until February 14.
The new Sunday Mail Young Scot Award 2021 winners will join a prestigious roll call of previous recipients including Sir Andy Murray, Olympian Laura Muir, and top vlogger Jamie Genevieve. Recent winners include actor, Ncuti Gatwa from Neftlix’s Sex Education, Singer-songwriter Be Charlotte and, overall winners, the phenomenal team behind the Scottish Youth Climate Strike.
Louise Macdonald OBE, chief executive, Young Scot, said: “The Sunday Mail Young Scot Awards is a way for us to celebrate the achievements of Scotland’s young people who’ve given so much to our communities recently. If you know a young person in West Lothian who impresses you, or someone who’s gone above and beyond to help others, then we want to hear about them. Make your nomination today.”
Esther Silverton, Young Scot of the Year 2020 winner, on behalf of the Scottish Youth Climate Strikers, said: “It was an honour to win the Sunday Mail Young Scot Award, there are so many people that do so many amazing things and fully deserve to get recognition for what they do, I’m hugely grateful and I hope that this shows everyone that you can fight for what you believe in because everyone has the power to help change the world.”
Winners will be announced in April 2021 during a live online ceremony that will be broadcast live on Young Scot’s YouTube channel.
