The Minnesota Credit Union Network and the Credit Union National Association are accepting applications for the annual Dora Maxwell, Louise Herring and Desjardins Financial Education recognition programs through Monday, July 1.

Links to the individual award applications are below. Those who enter will compete with other credit unions in the same asset category for programs and initiatives that occurred during 2018.

  • Louise Herring Award for Philosophy-in-Action   – focuses on the internal programs and services of a credit union. Credit unions who received the award have demonstrated the practical application of the credit union philosophy within the actual operations of the credit union.
  • Desjardins Youth and Adult Financial Education Awards  – recognizes the leadership of individual credit unions and chapters on behalf of youth and adult financial education. Activities eligible for consideration include those that raise awareness and marshal resources on behalf of financial literacy.

Award entries are judged by the Credit Union Association of the Dakotas Awards Committee to ensure unbiased results. The winners in each award category will advance to CUNA’s national contest where they will compete with credit unions across the country, with judging to take place this fall. Full program details and FAQs are available on the MnCUN Awards Page.
