HTSI Awards 2020

The Highland Third Sector Interface is delighted to open nominations for the Third Sector Awards.  

Nominations will close on Wednesday 4th November.

Before you begin your nomination please make sure you have read the nomination information document which clearly outlines the criteria for each award. 

The ceremony will be held in 2021, hopefully in March but this will be dependent on government advice.

Award categories are the same as last year's, however we have added three categories in recognition of the enormous efforts surrounding COVID-19.

Thank you for your nominations.

Community COVID-19 Response 2020

In recognition of the incredible individuals and organisations who responded to community need around the COVID-19 outbreak and subsequent lockdown within Highland.  The following are three distinct categories in their own right but nominations for each will be expected to evidence the impact and difference that the individual or organisation was able to make; particularly why their contribution was so special and how it made a difference to people’s lives. 


  • Focused on activity through March – August 2020

  • Impact is important. It is essential that you explain why you feel the nominee deserves the award with specific reference to the impact that they have had or are having. 

  • A good nomination will be able to explain how the nominee stands out in a field of excellence and strength.
