REMINDER: Apply NOW for the SMN Recognition Awards 2017!

We are now accepting applications for the 2017 SMN Recognition Awards. Our annual awards are designed to acknowledge mentoring projects and individuals that have made a significant impact over the past year and are open to members of SMN and GMN.  

Awards are categorised based on the various thematic areas that projects work in, with awards given to the project that is deemed to be the best in its area.  From the category awards an overall winning project is selected to receive the Project of the Year Award.  

All projects that submit an application form will be given the opportunity to nominate a mentor to receive the ‘Mentor of the Year’ Award which will be presented to a mentor who has made a special difference.  The opportunity will also be given to nominate a member of staff who has made a significant impact or gone above and beyond for their project.

We will be accepting applications until 12 noon on Friday 13th October 2017 and after this all received application will be submitted to our awards panel for assessment to determine the winners.  

Awards will be presented to the winning projects and individuals at our National Event at St Paul's and St George's Church in Edinburgh on Wednesday 15th November and places can be booked here.
