After months of campaigning, Ellon Academy 3rd year pupils Anna Maria Cameron and friend Kain Mcleod were both elected as Members of the Scottish Youth Parliament representing Aberdeenshire East on Friday, March 13.

The constituency covers areas including Ellon, Oldmeldrum, Inverurie, Turrif and Mintlaw.

Both Anna Maria and Kain had been campaigning in their local area since the beginning of the year and are very thankful to Ellon Academy for giving them time off to visit other schools and read out their manifesto to every year group.

Speaking to the Times, Anna Maria and Kain said: “We would also like to thank everyone who supported us, such as the local youth workers, and everyone who voted for us.”
