The awards ceremony aims to celebrate the achievements of the past year, as well as those who put in their hard work and effort to promote the women's game across the country.
And it will be a big night for those nominated in the youth game, with three awards up for grabs in youth categories, alll of which have worthy nominees.
Here is a list of the awards and nominees for the event on the 17th November
SWF Youth Player of the Year
Ami Robertson
The Celtic U15's player has contributed greatly for her team, adding assists and goals to help her team to the summit of the U15's National Performance League, the semi-final of the Scottish Cup and has even lifted silverware, lifting the National Performance League Cup.
Bayley Hutchison
It's been a breakthrough season for Hutchison, who has shown outstanding promise, turning out for Aberdeen Ladies in the SWPL 2 at just 14-years of age. Her form earned her a call-up to the Scotland Under-17 squad, debuting in a 1-0 win over Portugal.
Carly Girasoli
Scotland international Hayley Lauder said in an interview last month with the Scottish Herald that she was amazed by the level of consistencey shown by Carly Girasoli since breaking into the Glasgow City first-team at just 16-years old. The central defender scored on her debut against Rangers and has travelled with the City squad on their European adventure. Hopes are certainly high for the future of Girasoli.
Ellie Cook
The Dryburgh Athletic captain has impressed many this year, leading her team to the SWF North/East Region League Cup as well as the U17's Scottish Cup Final, getting on the scoresheet in the semi-final against Murieston United. Cook has also made her mark at international level, captaining the Clubs of Scotland U17's squad, scoring a hat-trick in the process against Wales.
Eve McFadden
It's been a terrific year for Eve McFadden. Building on a great campaign last season, which saw her lift the Scottish Cup, she has since proven to be a valuable player to the Hibernian Ladies U19 side, helping them to Performance League Cup glory. She also earned a call-up to the Scotland U17 squad, making her debut against Portugal.
Isla Brown
Midfielder Brown has been putting in a number of impressive performances for East Fife at U15's and first-team level. Signed from AM Soccer at the beginning of 2016, she has shown great potential and will surely be a name to look out for for years to come.
SWF Youth Coach of the Year
Allan Telfer
Coaching across many different sports is always a difficult task but it is one that Allan Telfer takes on well. Whilst running his own coaching lessons he has also led a title challenge for the Hibernian Ladies U13's.
Debbie Horn
Debbie Horn has been an active member of Bedlay Community Club since 2014 and has rightfully earned her nomination for this award. Her dedication to coaching has not gone unnoticed and rightfully takes her place among the nominees.
John Beatt
It's been a terrific season so far for Dryburgh Athletic U17's and John Beatt has been a key part of their success. Athletic have already won the North/East Region Cup and sit top of the North/East League. A win in the Scottish Cup Final would be the icing on the cake to round of what has been a very good season.
Tommy Russo
It's been a season of defying expectations for Cove Youth Girls and Tommy Russo. The North Region team are playing their first competitve season this year and reached the third round of the Scottish Cup, beating Aberdeen Youth along the way and narrowly going out courtesy of an extra-time defeat to Lanarkshire Hibs. This feat has not gone unnoticed and Cove will undoubtedly be proud of Russo for all his work.
SWF Youth Team of the Year
Aberdeen FC Ladies Dons U13's Dev
A nomination for Team of the Year is not a bad way to round of a great season for Aberdeen U13's. An appearance in the final of the North Region League Cup and currently sitting top of the North Kim Little League, it has certainly been a season to remember for the Dons.
Celtic U15's 
There is plenty to be proud of from a Celtic perspective this year. A win in the final of the National Performance League Cup Final as well as an apperance in the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup and sitting in first place, with a game in had, in the National Performance League. A great campaign for the Ghirls in Green.
Dryburgh Athletic
Dryburgh are a club on the rise. A new partnership with Dundee United secures their long-term future and they have a Scottish Cup Final to look forward to. Add to that a North/East Region League Cup triumph and an excellent chance of winning the East/North League and things are looking up for Athletic.
Hibernian Ladies U19's
A good season so far for Hibernian that could still get better. A big win against Rangers to lift the National Performance League Cup as well as a number of plyers earning youth international call-ups. They were beaten to the Performance League by Celtic, but Hibernian have earned their place among the nominees.
Congratulations to all of those nominated and good luck on the 17th November!!
