It was a successful night overall for the organisation, as other members were also celebrated in other categories, including the Year of the Young People Team being highly commended in the Community Group category.
Sarah Fiske was at at the Youthlink Scotland Awards ceremony and was surprised to be a winner.

“I was really inspired by their great work and was very surprised to win.
“I feel proud to be part of this team and to bring the award back to Elgin and share our success with our young people.”
Two other members of EYDG were nominated for the individual award, with Aidan Henderson winning it, and Nathan Anderson being commended.
