Apply for an Award  NYMA runs two award schemes which recognise contributions to conservation (natural or cultural).  

 
President’s Award - 2018 
The President’s Award supports research which contributes to the body of knowledge on the North York Moors. Awards cover a wide range of topics, such as natural history, archaeology, social or economic history (or current issues), and the environment (natural or built). The research can be at the planning or implementation stage and applicants can be students, academics, members of local interest groups, or individual researchers.  
In 2018 we couldn't decide between two very good applications so the prize was split! Past winners include: 
Carol Wilson for publication of her guide to the wildflowers of Westerdale (2018) 
Thornton-le-Dale History Society to support research into the history of the village (2018). 
Fylingdale moorland birds study 
Adders and their habitat  
Moorland peat and vegetation survey 
Study of Barn Owl pellets 
 
Win £500 for your conservation work! 
 
We offer an annual award of £500 for conservation of the built or natural environment in the North York Moors National Park. The President’s Award (last awarded in 2018) alternates with the Conservation Award (next awarded in 2019). 
 
This year's award opportunity is now closed.
