Among the winners in Glasgow last year was Mashal Aamir, 25, who won first place in the international category for his work mentoring international students studying in the UK.
Mashal said, “I was so honored to win the international award, it was even an honor to be shortlisted alongside my fellow nominees last year.
“Scotland is a wonderfully inclusive nation and I hope my work highlights the benefits of cross-cultural international collaboration and encourages others to participate.”
Govanhill Active Living Club won in the Sport category for their efforts to combat racism through physical activity.
Project coordinator Gregor Cree said: “The young people involved in Active Life Club are truly remarkable and deserve all the credit for their award. Their work helps bring about real change in the community and they constantly give of their time to improve the lives of others.”
Kirsten Urquhart, Managing Director (Acting) of Young Scot, added: “Since the launch of the Young Scot Awards in 2006, we have been blown away by the inspiring achievements of young people.
“It’s an honor to celebrate their accomplishments, so if you know someone who has gone above and beyond to help others, we want to hear about them.”
