For the last 25 years The Sunday Mail Great Scot Awards have been championing everything that’s great about Scotland. The Awards take great pride in honouring the nation’s unsung heroes and celebrating their courage, determination and selflessness.
This year, The Sunday Mail are pulling out all the stops to make sure the event is the most spectacular yet and we are delighted to announce that, for the very first time, the National Lottery will have its own category.
This award will be presented to a project that has used Lottery funding, large or small, to make a positive impact in their community. This could be a project working in the arts, education, environment, health, heritage, sport or the voluntary/charity sector.
We are looking for you to get involved and have your say. Is there a Big Lottery funded organisation or group you know of that has made life changing differences for the people around them? If you do, it’s really easy to nominate, go online to the website. You will be asked for some basic details and a short submission, of no more than 500 words, detailing the reasons for your nomination. The deadline for entries is Monday 7 September 2015.
Since the first ceremony in 1991, more than 200 awards have been handed out and tribute has been paid to thousands of ordinary people who have achieved the extraordinary. You can find out more about past winners here.
The winner will be revealed at a glittering gala dinner at the Hilton Hotel Glasgow on Saturday 17 October.
