On Tuesday 14th April, MSYPs, their Support Workers, and partners across Scotland took part in our virtual version of SYP’s annual awards ceremony. The virtual SYP Awards 2020 was organised in place of an event at the Scottish Parliament, which was cancelled in March due to ongoing concerns with the coronavirus outbreak. SYP would like to thank the line up of brilliant speakers who were keen to celebrate the MSYPs’ hard work and achievements over the past year.
There may not have been a fancy meal or a live band…but MSYPs were encouraged to #StaySmilingInside by dressing up (or down in their pyjamas!), and make a mocktail for the occasion from the safety of their homes. You can check out their engagement on the night by viewing the hashtag #SYPAwards20.
The Ros Clark Support Worker of the Year
The Donald MacLeod Award for Exceptional Team Work
Transcript: Hello everybody, we are YWCA Scotland, the Young Women’s Movement. We are excited and honoured to be tuning into the SYP Awards with all of you. We have the pleasure of announcing Exceptional Team Work. This year this award goes to North Lanarkshire Youth Council! The nomination for NLYC gives a great example of how the team has worked together to consult young people and respond to the local needs identified through their consultation responses. By successfully securing young people a place on their local council committee, they have also demonstrated awareness of how to take local issues from their youth consultation to a higher level.
