Explorer Scout Fraser Waugh (17) has plenty to be pleased about. His entry in the Rotary District 1020 Young Writer Competition had been submitted by Rotary Club of Penicuik to the District (South of Scotland) round of the competition.
After judging, Fraser’s entry emerged as the winning entry in the senior section of the competition, which was sponsored by Waterstones Bookstores.
He received his prize from crime author Bill Daly. Fraser has just completed sixth year at Beeslack Community High School and was editor of the Beeslack newspaper. He is going to college to study Media and Communications.
Fraser, his family, friends, teachers and local Rotarians attended the awards ceremony.
