Scottish Power Inspiration Awards
Over the last three years the Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards in Glasgow has been supported by Scottish Power. Last year, to celebrate the success of the partnership we launched the first ever Scottish Power Inspiration Awards. These awards are in addition to the DofE awards gained by participants and will celebrate the commitment by leaders and innovative work going on in Glasgow. Nominations for the 2013 Awards are now open.
There are 3 nominated categories
· Most Creative Expedition Project/Presentation
This is a team award for an interesting or exciting Expedition presentation/project. Nominations in this category could be due to an unusual project topic, a funny or interesting experience or due to the media used. This award can be nominated by a DofE leader, Coordinator or another Expedition team.

This award is to celebrate the great work undertaken by a leader that has gone the extra mile to support participants with their DofE programme. This award can be nominated by participants, leaders, parents or a colleague.

This award could be a team or individual award to capture some unique piece of work as part of the Volunteering, Skill, Physical or Expedition section. Nominations in this category should be a creative or unusual DofE programme and can be nominated by participants, leaders or parents.
