Competition

Scottish Heroes - there can be only one!


We want you to tell us who your Scottish hero is and why.  It doesn’t have to be a historical character, it can be any Scot who you think deserves to be recognised for their work or achievements.

Sorry - this competition has now closed!

Don't worry - you can still send us your photos, videos and stories to be put on our Kids Gallery.

Easy! Just tell us in no more than 100 words who your Scottish hero is and why.

Or if you're feeling creative why not submit a photo or short video explaining your choice. You could even dress up as your hero in the photo or video!

Please put "Scottish Heroes" in the caption field of the entry form along with your selected hero. For example "Scottish Heroes - Chris Hoy"
