Highland Heroes will recognise the primary pupil of the year at the 2023 awards.

The Heroes award for primary school pupil will go to a youngster who has achieved something beyond expectations in education, sport or helping others at school.

Last year’s winner was Sophie Stewart of Conon Bridge Primary.

Graintek is sponsoring the award for primary pupil of the year. Kenny Addison from Graintek was delighted to support the Heroes campaign and sponsor the award for primary pupil of the year: “Primary school is such an important time in a child’s life. It’s when they really start to develop their own character and personality. So many youngsters at that age develop an understanding of caring for others, and helping those less fortunate than themselves, show determination to overcome challenges and work hard to achieve their goals.

“We are delighted to sponsor the primary pupil of the year award and celebrate our amazing youngsters.”

Sponsored by Inverness Airport, Highland Heroes features 14 categories where you can nominate individuals or groups in your community who you feel have gone above and beyond to support and care for others.

The categories are:

  • Primary pupil
  • Primary teacher
  • Secondary pupil
  • Secondary teacher
  • School of the year
  • Brave child
  • Carer
  • Fundraiser
  • Charitable organisation
  • Emergency services/armed forces hero
  • Healthcare hero
  • Volunteer
  • Community champion
  • Green hero

Once all of your nominations are in, our judging panel will create a shortlist for you to vote for your Highland Heroes of 2023!

There is also a very special accolade which will be presented at the awards at the Macdonald Drumossie Hotel, Inverness on Friday, March 10, 2023. The hero of heroes will be decided by our judges from all of the winners at the ceremony and revealed on the night!
