OUR WONDERWALL celebrating Scotswoman of the Year winners over the decades is back. And there are two spaces available – who should become our 2019 champions?
The Glasgow Times is looking for nominations for both the main award and Young SWOTY, – but don’t delay as time is running out.
The closing date for entries to SWOTY, in association with our generous partner, St Enoch Centre, is Friday, December 20, so if you know someone who deserves to win either of our two prestigious awards, let us know as soon as possible by completing the online submission form at https://newsquestscotlandevents.com/events/swoty/ or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
For Young SWOTY, once all the nominations are in, 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.
Both winners will be announced at a glittering gala invitation-only dinner in the Grand Central Hotel on March 26, 2020.
This trailblazing newspaper has been celebrating female achievement since 1963, when Red Cross worker Bessie Johnston took the title at a lunch in the Gay Gordon’s restaurant in Glasgow city centre.
Since then, a fantastic succession of worthy winners have lifted the trophy, from lifesaving pioneers to celebrities, from charity champions to leading businesswomen, campaigners and sportswomen.
Last year, for the first time, we introduced a Young SWOTY award, celebrating the achievements of 12 to 21-year-olds. Athlete Maria Lyle won the first title, alongside MND campaigner Lucy Lintott, who picked up the main award.
Who should follow in their footsteps? It could be a celebrity, or your next-door-neighbour – tell us who has impressed you over the last 12 months.
Let us know before December 20.
