Ruaraidh Gal­braith, 16, from Barra has been an­nounced as a fi­nal­ist in the Young Scot Awards, which recog­nise in­cred­i­ble and heroic achieve­ments.

As part of the Year of Young Peo­ple 2018, Scot­land set out to in­spire and cel­e­brate young peo­ple across the coun­try by show­cas­ing their ac­com­plish­ments and con­tri­bu­tions to their com­mu­ni­ties.

The Sun­day Mail and Steven Brown Art Young Scot Awards 2018 will be one of the clos­ing events of the Year of Young Peo­ple 2018 and is set to be the big­gest and best awards night in its 12-year his­tory.

Ruaraidh is a fi­nal­ist in the Ex­cel­lence in Ed­u­ca­tion cat­e­gory. Ruaraidh has dis­played out­stand­ing achieve­ment through his aca­demic ca­reer and has shown great ded­i­ca­tion to his school and com­mu­nity.

Be­yond the school en­vi­ron­ment, Ruaraidh was a mem­ber of the Young Scot 5Rights Youth Com­mis­sion which co-de­signs rec­om­men­da­tions on how to im­prove young peo­ple’s dig­i­tal rights. As part of the group, Ruaraidh pre­sented a fi­nal re­port last year to the Cab­i­net Sec­re­tary for Cul­ture, Tourism and Ex­ter­nal Af­fairs Fiona Hys­lop.

The an­nual awards cer­e­mony will be held on Fri­day Novem­ber 30.
