Time spent in participating in our Young Ambassadors Scheme can be
credited towards a Saltire Award.
Saltire Awards are for young people aged between 12 and 25, so they can
record their volunteering hours for over a decade! The festival has
applied to register as a Saltire Awards organisation. Young people
can and should sign up for the Saltire Scheme if they haven't yet and,
once they achieve any of the milestones -10, 25, 50, 100, 200 or 500

ask them to fill in the registration form or, if they're 13 or over,
they can go online and set up their own account https://saltireawards.org.uk/
