Since its launch in 2006, the Sunday Mail Young Scot Awards have been Scotland’s only national awards evening for the young people of Scotland.

They have celebrated the inspirational contributions and achievements of thousands of young Scots who have made a real difference to communities across the country.

We’ve seen the stories from the most incredible young people. Former nominees have risen to the top of the sporting, business, entertainment and the art worlds. Hundreds more are making a lasting difference all over Scotland.

The awards took place on Thursday 8th June at Platform, Glasgow, this year's event took on a festival theme and was an evening to remember. With fantastic entertainment, street food, a red carpet reception and, most importantly, we heard the stories of encouraging and amazing young people.
