The Youth Contest, won last year by Ross Brotherstone of Newtongrange, is open to all players aged 15 or younger on the day of the contest. There is also a special prize for the Best Soloist aged 12 and Under on the day of the contest, won last year by Hayley Edmond from West Lothian Schools Brass Band
