The Midlothian’s Young People Awards (MYPA) 2023 are open for nominations in five categories. Nominees should be aged between 8-26 years old at the time of their nomination. Both individuals and youth groups can be nominated.

These awards are organised by Midlothian Council in conjunction with the Lord-Lieutenant of Midlothian. They are also supported by Midlothian Young Ambassadors who are selected for their commitment and ability as young leaders or volunteers.

The five award categories reflect the various positive contributions of young people to Midlothian. The categories are:

– Caring and Volunteering

– Local Community

– Sport and Physical Activity

– Arts and Culture

– Achievement in Learning

In addition to the five category awards, there is also a sixth ‘Midlothian Prize’ award that is presented to the most outstanding young person from all the nominations.

You can nominate online HERE.

Anyone wanting a paper form or having issues accessing the online form should email CLL@Midlothian.gov.uk

The judging panel consists of a young person and representatives in the community.

Each winner will receive a certificate and a cash prize to be gifted to a Midlothian charity of their choice.

The closing date for nominations is Friday 27th October 2023.

Winners will be announced at a special awards ceremony, hosted by Midlothian’s Lord-Lieutenant on 28th November at Rosslyn Chapel.

The awards are sponsored by McTaggart Scott, Procure Wizard and the Access Group.
