Scotland's Rural College (SRUC) want to recognise the work of young people who show initiative, passion and enthusiasm for the environment and sustainable practices. Maybe you’ve helped set up a weekly beach clean in your local community, or maybe you’re the eco influencer amongst your friends. In return, you could be in with the chance of winning a £500 cash prize and an SRUC hoodie.


To apply, fill in your details on the application form and tell us why you’re a natural leader and what you’re doing to help protect the natural world and champion our values. This can either be in the form of a 500 character personal statement on our application form, a PowerPoint, or a TikTok or Instagram Reel. If you’re filming a TikTok or Reel, please remember to tag them on social media and to email the video.
