Scotland’s Champions in partnership with the Daily Record, Sunday Mail and Utilita will recognise and celebrate the exceptional achievements of ordinary people throughout Scotland.

This year’s event will be held on Saturday, 18th September at the DoubleTree by Hilton, Glasgow Central

We have scoured communities across Scotland in search of the unsung heroes – the people who deserve recognition for their efforts that seemingly go under the radar.

It is our mission to honour those people from all walks of life and showcase why Scotland is one of the greatest countries in the world.

Join us on this amazing evening which will attract some of the country's biggest celebrities and also honour some of our favourite faces from the worlds of music, film, TV, and sport.
