Nominations open for Tulloch Homes Young Orienteer of the Year

Young people are the future of our sport and we are once again delighted to announce the opening of nominations for the Young Orienteer of the Year award kindly sponsored by Tulloch Homes.  This annual award gives us the chance to recognise and celebrate the considerable contribution to orienteering by young people – particularly pertinent this year with developing youth being one of Scottish Orienteering’s themes for 2022.

To that end we are seeking nominations from any SOA members who know a young person, 21 years and under, who is making a real difference to orienteering in their club or community.

Last year’s winner, Matthew Gooch of MAROC, was selected from an admirable list of contenders for his contribution to the life of the club by serving on the committee as Computing Officer, planning and organising events as well as an impressive record in competition.

Do you know a young person who is inspiring others? Consistently assisting with club activities? Or making a difference by raising the profile of our sport through their volunteering?

Nominating has never been easier, simply fill in this short form:

Nominations close at 5pm on Friday 6th May. The presentation of the Tulloch Homes Young Orienteer of the Year quaich will take place at the Scottish Championships.
