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 star-studded evening will be held on Saturday 22nd June at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, 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 world’s biggest celebrity guests and also honours some of our favourite faces from the worlds of music, film, TV, and sport.

Sat 22nd June 2019
