Nominations are already pouring in for our annual awards celebration, in association with St Enoch Centre.
We want to hear who you think should succeed last year’s magnificent winner – Dr Corinne Hutton, quadruple amputee, inspirational charity founder and Scotland’s first recipient of a double hand transplant – and we want your nominations, too, for Young SWOTY.
Climate change campaigner Holly Gillibrand was named Young Scotswoman of the Year in 2019, while multiple World, Paralympic and European medallist Maria Lyle won in 2018 – who do you think should follow in their footsteps? This award is open to girls and young women aged between 12 and 21.
Tell us about inspirational individuals who have already made a fantastic contribution to Scottish society by helping others, perhaps overcoming personal challenges along the way.
