Clackmannanshire Council hosted a Youth Celebration event at the Dunmar House Hotel last Thursday, the first time such an event was held.

It was an event to celebrate young peoples achievements within Youth Services and to mark this they were all presented with certificates and awards.

Among the awards presented were the Dynamic Youth Award; the Youth Achievement Award; First Aid Award; Duke of Edinburgh sectional certificates; John Muir Award
Army Residential Award; and all levels of the Saltire Award.

The Council's Education, Sport and Leisure Convener, Councillor Ellen Forson, who helped present the awards, said: "We are the first organisation to present Saltire awards locally and have young people at all four levels with four young people nominated for the Summit award which is for making an outstanding contribution to volunteering."

The presentations were made by both Councillor Forson and Provost Tina Murphy. The presentation was followed by a buffet and disco.
