The Peak District Award

The Peak District Award, offered by the Peak District National Park Learning and Discovery Team, is designed to celebrate the special qualities of the National Park and recognise the involvement of visitors and residents in the Peak District National Park. The Award aims to encourage participants to deepen their knowledge and understanding of the features that make it such a special, valued and characteristic place. It is centred on three key questions that should guide you through the award:

• What special quality of the area are you going to find out about?
• Why did you choose this particular special quality?
• How are going to find out about the special quality?

The Award is designed to be very flexible, all that’s required is:

• Make at least one visit to the Peak District National Park.
• Choose a special quality unique to the National Park.
• Spend time working on the Award.
• Keep a record of your personal progression.
• Celebrate your achievement.
