This year has certainly shown that young people in Scotland can show resilience and creativity in times of hardship. So – now’s the time to nominate the most inspirational young people in your lives and local areas for the Sunday Mail Young Scot Awards 2021!  

Now in its fifteenth year, the Sunday Mail Young Scot Awards recognise outstanding 11-26-year-olds from all backgrounds who are making a difference. The Awards celebrate the contributions made by young people to all aspects of our communities – from sport and the arts, through to enterprise and volunteering.  

Nominations are open until 14 February 2021. Winners will be announced in April 2021 during our live online ceremony that will be broadcast on our YouTube channel.  

The Sunday Mail Young Scot Award 2021 winners will join a prestigious roll-call of previous winners, including Sir Andy Murray, Olympian Laura Muir, and top vlogger Jamie Genevieve. Recent winners include actor, Ncuti Gatwa from Neftlix’s Sex Education, and the phenomenal team behind the Scottish Youth Climate Strikes.  

The Awards is only possible thanks to the generous support of our sponsors. Skills Development Scotland is returning as the sponsor of the Enhancing Education Award and Solace Scotland backing the Unsung Hero category once again. sportscotland is also returning as the sponsor of the Sport Award, while the British Council Scotland is sponsoring the new International Award – marking its first year as an official partner.
