2023 Award Nominations
  • Make nominations online for Fife's 2023 Volunteering and Voluntary Sector Awards.
    Nominations close on Wednesday 19 April.

    The Saltire Summit Award is for an outstanding contribution to volunteering, and is for young people aged 12-25 who have normally achieved at least their 200 hour Saltire Ascent. They are normally nominated by the organisation they volunteer for or their school, college or university. Saltire Summit Award recipients are chosen by a Summit Panel made up of representatives from schools, colleges and voluntary organisations, as well as Saltire Ambassadors - young volunteers who promote and facilitate the Saltire Awards in Fife.

    PLEASE NOTE: this award is different to the Young Volunteer Award. Nominees MUST have achieved their 200 hour Saltire Award.

    Nominees must fulfil the following criteria:
    • Have completed the Saltire Ascent (200 hours volunteering)
    • Be aged 12 - 25
    • Be resident and volunteering in Fife
    • Be nominated by the organisation they volunteer for or their school, college or university. Nominations from friends and family members will not be accepted.

    If you wish to nominate more than one volunteer please submit a separate nomination form for each.

    PLEASE NOTE: there is a maximum of two nominees per organisation.

Brief Guidance
Things to consider which will help judges to assess against their criteria:

- Has the volunteer been dependable and enthusiastic?

- Has the volunteer/organisation had a positive impact on their community/group/club, members or service users?

- Has the volunteer/organisation shown responsibility and taken their role/purpose seriously?

- Has the volunteer/organisation been particularly creative and/or innovative?

- Has their involvement gone beyond what would normally be expected of a volunteer/organisation? - Has the volunteer overcome barriers to volunteering e.g. health issues, family/work commitments? - If the nomination is for the Active Volunteer Award, has this volunteer contributed significantly to your organisation without having a particularly sport-based background, for example?

- Have you included current evidence of volunteering?
