The former Open champion watched at Murcar Links on Saturday as Peebles teenager Craig Howie surged to a 7&6 victory over Ewan Scott, of St Andrews, in the 36-hole final.
Lawrie's association with the national junior championship was initially for one year but the Aberdonian is hopeful the relationship can flourish.
The 2013 event will take place at Monifieth for the first time, and Lawrie is eager to be involved.
"I think both parties were waiting to see how the first year went," said Lawrie, who is also lending his backing to this season's Scottish Girls' event. "But we are now eager to sit down, chat and see what they [the SGU] want to do. It's a huge event, the biggest event for boys in the country, and we were very happy with what's been here at Murcar and what we have seen."
Lawrie would no doubt have been impressed by Howie, who produced a telling thrust in the early stages of the afternoon round to romp to victory over Scott to take the trophy back to a Borders club for the first time in the event's history.
Until then, the contest had been decidedly nip and tuck. All-square after 19 holes, Howie then won seven of the next eight during a purposeful, profitable burst that was bolstered by a masterful display with the putter. That the 17-year-old had just 12 putts over the final 10 holes showed just what Scott was up against on the greens.
Having earned top marks on Saturday, Howie will shortly turn his attention to the school books. While many of his peers will be pondering a scholarship in the United States, the Borderer is hoping to develop his education and his golfing talents on home soil, at Stirling University.
"I need an A and a B in my exams to get in to Stirling so now it's a case of putting the effort into that," said Howie, as he aims to join the golf programme at the institution which boasts the likes of Catriona Matthew and Richie Ramsay among its alumni. "And the US was not really an option for me anyway because of the money side of things."
Before he gets stuck into the revision, Howie will travel to the Copt Heath club near Birmingham today for this week's Peter McEvoy Trophy.
"I expected to have a good season and do big things," added Howie. "This win is a huge stepping stone for me."
