Nominations encouraged

Graeme Dey, Angus South MSP, is encouraging his constituents to nominate a young person aged between 11 to 26 years old who has made a positive difference to the people’s lives in the local area.

The Sunday Mail Young Scot Awards 2012, in association with The Co-operative Foundation, are asking for nominations to be submitted to www.youngscotawards.co.uk before Friday, Friday, February 26.

The Awards organisers want to hear inspirational stories, which truly reflect Scotland’s outstanding young people.

Mr Dey said: “I know and have met many inspirational young people in Angus South over the past year, who dedicate themselves to helping others in one way or another.

“Anyone who can think of someone they know, or a group project, which deserves recognition at national level, should submit a nomination to the Young Scot Awards.

“There are a number of different award categories, and the more people or groups put forward the better. This is a good opportunity to flag up the good work going on in Angus, and to get local young folk the credit they deserve.”
