We Decide - Results

The voting fopr 2021 has taken place over two rounds for the We Decide - Children and Yopung People voting for Change funds.

£5,000 was allocated per school cluster area.  The most voted for projects per cluster area (1 Academy and 2 Primary School) were awarded funding for their project.

The vote took place on the Young Scot electronic voting platofrm in two sessions - one in October and one in November-December 2021

1789 young people voted over the two rounds, and 44 projects have been funded! What an achievement for young people in Aberdeenshire, particularly during the time of the global COVID-19 pandemic and Young Scot hope to be able to support similar votes in the future.
