How to Nominate Someone for a Young Scot Award

Do you know a young person – or a group of young people – who have done some pretty brilliant stuff? We bet you do! If you think they should get a Young Scot Award for everything they’ve done - then you need to nominate them!

Not sure how? Here's the step-by-step guide!

Step 1

Check out all the different categories. With everything from Entertainment, to Sport, to Enhancing Education - we’ve got a guide to all the categories which you can check out.

What one do you think the person or group you want to nominate fits into? If you're not sure, then you can also just pick one you think might fit best - it will still count!

Step 2

Once you’ve decided which category to nominate them in, click the pink Nominate button!

Step 3

The page will then ask you if it’s one person, or a group of people that you would like to nominate for the award.

It will also ask you to make sure you’ve picked the right category.

Step 4

Now it’s time to ask all the important stuff about your nominee!

We ask for things like name(s), age(s) and local authority and even if they have their own social media channels. If you’re not sure what local authority they stay in you can look it up on the Gov.uk website.

Don't worry if you don't know all of the information - some of the fields are mandatory but if you don't know their address, for example, we can get that later down the line if it's needed!

Step 5

Now we need to know a little more about the young person or group you’re nominating.

It’s okay if you don’t have all this information – but it makes everything much easier if you give us as many of the things we ask for as possible. Pictures are much appreciated!

Step 6

The next part where we ask you a little bit more about you. This is just in case we need to get in touch with you to find out more information about the person or people you are nominating.

Step 7

We need to ask your permission for a few things, so make sure you agree with all of these, and the terms and conditions also on the page, before submitting your nomination.

Step 8

Click 'submit' to nominate - and that's it!

Congratulations, you’ve just nominated an amazing young person or group for The Sunday Mail Young Scot Awards 2020! We can't wait to read their story...
