To complement the international speakers, some young Scots spoke of their involvement in various faith projects and movements. Among them were two people who were involved in the Caritas Award. Heather Black, a parishioner of St Mary’s Duntocher, was presented with the award in June 2012. Catriona McAllister has been enrolled for the Caritas Award this year by her school, Notre Dame High School, Glasgow.
