Youth awards

People in Midlothian are being asked to put forward inspirational local young people for a national award.

‘Young Scot’ is urging the public to nominate young people aged 11-26 who have made a real difference in their area and a positive effect on the lives of others.

Three finalists in each of the 11 categories will be invited to a ceremony at Clyde Auditorium in April where the winners will be revealed.

Louise Macdonald, Chief Executive of Young Scot said: “If you know a young person or group from Midlothian who you think deserves to be recognised for their talents and achievements, we are urging you to nominate them now.”

To nominate a young person or group, visit before midnight on February 17.
