UHI Moray is sponsoring the award for secondary school pupil of the year.


Head of academic partnerships, Jackie Andrews, said: “UHI Moray is proud to support the Moray & Banffshire Heroes awards. It is important that we continue to recognise the endeavours and achievements of our young people, especially at a time where society is re-emerging following the pandemic.

“UHI Moray works closely with our local secondary schools to provide opportunities for young people to challenge themselves, to stretch their horizons and take on new opportunities through our Senior Phase programme and newly developed BGE programme. This is one of the main reasons why we sponsor the secondary school pupil award. I would urge everyone to vote for the nominees demonstrating that we are very proud of their achievements.”

Sponsored by Inverness Airport, the Moray and Banffshire Heroes awards feature 12 main categories:

  • Volunteer
  • Brave child
  • Green hero
  • Primary teacher
  • Secondary pupil
  • Emergency services hero
  • Carer
  • Healthcare hero
  • Primary pupil
  • Community champion
  • Fundraiser
  • Secondary school teacher

Each week, your favourite Highland News & Media websites and newspapers will feature each category with details about how to nominate your heroes.

Once all of your nominations are in, our judging panel will whittle down your entries to create a shortlist which will be published in a special supplement where you can vote for your Moray and Banffshire Heroes of 2023.

In addition to the 12 main categories, there is also a very special award. Our judges will choose the hero of heroes from all of the winners and they will be revealed on awards night on Thursday, April 20, 2023.
