Pinnacle Youth Award

Open to young people aged between 18 and 27 who live, work or study in the Greater Exmoor area, the Pinnacle Award offers £3,000 to an individual or group who has 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 2019 are being taken now with a closing date of 30 June.
To apply, download the conditions of entry pages, and the application and referee forms below.

2018 Pinnacle Award received applications for three outstanding young people that it was impossible to select a winner.  As it is the Society’s 60th anniversary, the Trustees decided to extend the funding and award £3,000 to each one.  For more details, please see the press release here.
