The work of the Society, its officers and ambassadors around the globe, celebrates the many diverse achievements of the people and Britain's largest county. The work of the society often includes raising funds in order that important projects are financed in full or part, supporting efforts to study and solve some of the industrial, commercial and unemployment issues in the area.

More traditional work of the society includes annually awarding The Yorkshire Society History Prizes (for details of the 2015 Prizes click here and notice of the 2016 Prizes please click here), providing sponsorship for charities and charitable events; celebrating Yorkshire Day on the 1st August, the Yorkshire Day Anthem and Flag. We also erect Yorkshire Rose Plaques of famous Yorkshire men and women not previously commemorated within the county. The typically diverse characters to receive this honour include Percy Shaw, inventor of cats' eyes, and Benjamin Henry Latrobe, architect of The White House.
