WHO should be crowned Evening Times Scotswoman of the Year 2019?

Entries are flooding in for our search to find a successor to last year’s inspirational winner and MND campaigner Lucy Lintott.

We want to hear who you think should follow in Lucy’s footsteps – and we want your nominations, too, for Young SWOTY.

Following the success of last year’s inaugural Young Scotswoman of the Year award, this accolade returns for a second, spectacular year.

It is open to girls and young women aged between 12 and 21.

Last year’s winner, Maria Lyle, is a multiple World, Paralympic and European medallist and world record holder.

The teenager from Dunbar inspires many with her determination to overcome the obstacles she faces living with cerebral palsy.

She was one of the first British athletes to talk about the mental healthstresses involved in dealing with life both on and off the track.

You can nominate for Young SWOTY by completing the online submission form or emailing by Friday, December 20, 2019.

A judging panel will draw up a shortlist which will then be open to a public vote #voteyoungswoty across our website and social media platforms.

The deadline for nominations for the main award, 2019 Scotswoman of the Year, is also December 20.

To nominate your SWOTY or YOUNG SWOTY of 2019, email nina.holmes@newsquest.co.uk by the closing date of Friday, December 20, at 5pm.

You can also place your nomination on the website https://newsquestscotlandevents.com/events/swoty/
