NUS Scotland has announced the finalists for the second annual NUS Scotland Awards.

The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony at NUS Scotland’s national conference on 3 March in Irvine. 

Robin Parker, President of NUS Scotland, said: “NUS Scotland Awards 2012, now in its second year, recognises the inspirational work that students and students’ association across Scotland do every day. The awards highlight the daily achievements of students and students' associations that often go unnoticed outside of their campus or community.

“NUS Scotland received close to 100 nominations for awards ranging from best College Union and Student Media to Community Relations and Best Club/Society. By recognising these students, and automatically entering them into the national NUS Awards event, we hope other students will be inspired to get involved in students' associations and broaden their student experience.”
