Welcome to
Langholm Awards

The “Welcome to Langholm” Future Champions Awards for 2020 have been launched.
This is the fourth year the awards have run and they got underway in Annan last Wednesday.
Langholm athletes Conan Harper and Iona Jamieson joined Nicole Proudfoot, Danny Gracie, Finlay Waugh, Katie Reville and Molly Reville, who all received funding and have been setting the world of track and field alight in 2019, attended the launch.
The fund was established in September 2016 to give financial support to young athletes from Annandale and Eskdale to help their ambitions of becoming the medal winners of the future.
The five-year programme running from 2018 to 2022 had funds of £50,000, of which £13,000 was awarded to 27 young athletes aged 10 to 21 in 2019.
The funding comes from Langholm-based charities the Stevenson Trust, Bowman Little Trust, Auchterlonie Future Champions Awards, Arthur Bell of Langholm Trust and Stoneypath Trust and is administered by Active Schools and Community Sport in Annandale and Eskdale.
The programme has been developed to fast-track young sporting talent, the potential medal winners of the future.
The awards are a unique partnership which work with schools and sports clubs and designed to cater for young athletes who are in education or the early stages of their career or employment.
A minimum £10,000 is available to distribute each year, with 20 individual awards being made, including awards of £1,000, £500 and £250.
