Secondary school nominations for learner of year awards

Lantra Scotland’s Secondary School Awards are sponsored by RHASS and celebrate school projects and activities which support and encourage increased knowledge and understanding in rural learning.

Individual students on a Skills for Work (Rural Skills) course or an NPA in Rural Skills or Aquaculture at a Scottish school can be entered for our School Pupil Award.

Our two categories for schools are for urban and rural secondarys in Scotland, with winners receiving £250.

If you’d like to enter our awards, please read the following guidance and then fill out the online or printed form with your school’s partner organisation.

How to make a nomination

To be eligible, your school could be: developing a school garden or vegetable plot; working on a biodiversity project or in a community woodland; delivering rural skills as part of the curriculum or working in partnership with a local farmer or crofter.

Just tell us how us your project or activity has benefited pupils, the school and the wider community, getting a partner college, teacher or employer to say why your school deserves to win an award. Please include photographs and logos as high-resolution jpegs.

Please send your completed forms to or post them to Lantra Scotland, Inveralmond Business Centre, Auld Bond Road, Perth PH1 3FX by Friday 9th November 2018.

An independent panel of judges will decide who to shortlist and may invite some schools to an interview.

Finalists and guests will be invited to a fabulous awards ceremony at the DoubleTree by Hilton Dunblane Hydro on the evening of Thursday 7th March 2019.
