Pinnacle Youth Award

In response to the severe impact of Covid-19 on our rural economy, we have extended the age range for the award to anyone between 18 and 35 years who lives, works or studies in the Greater Exmoor area.  We have also increased the Pinnacle Award from £3,000 to £5,000, available to applicants – individuals or groups – with an Exmoor-based business start-up or development plan.

The Award was set up in 2011 by The Exmoor Society for young entrepreneurs who wish to live and work on Exmoor.  As a conservation body, we fully recognise the importance of providing opportunities for young people to remain on the moor when they enter the world of work.  We want to show that beautiful landscapes and livelihoods can go together to keep the very essence of Exmoor alive.

Applications for 2020 are being taken now and the closing date has also been extended to midnight on Monday 2 November 2020.
