The Gold Award Hall of Fame lists all the young people who received their Gold Awards and information about each presenter. Visit the Hall of Fame to find out more.

The Presentations would not be possible without the volunteers who donate their time to the event. DofE Scotland would like to thank everyone who volunteered at the presentations, including marshals and presenters.

Our thanks also goes to Purvis Marquees who kindly donated the use of their marquees – they were much needed both afternoons when the weather turned wet.
