VOSCARs (D&G) 2018 Nomination Form

2018 is the Year of Young People and we’re celebrating this by showcasing some of the talent within our region. We’re also changing our format in response to comments we’ve received. This year we’re having a two-tier approach. We’ll be presenting locality awards for each category, the winners of which will be invited to our VOSCARs (D&G) 2018 event where the regional winners will be announced.

The VOSCARs (D&G) 2018 will recognise outstanding volunteers within the Dumfries and Galloway area. Please note individuals, groups or people using the group must be based in the Dumfries and Galloway region.
