Town & Country Credit Union, Minot, was recognized among 2021 state-level award recipients in the National Awards Program as determined by the Credit Union National Association, according to the Dakota Credit Union Association (DakCU).

Honors were made during the DakCU Summit awards banquet on May 11 in South Falls, South Dakota. State-level awards were judged by peers at the Minnesota Credit Union Network, Utah Credit Union League and the Cooperative Credit Union Association.

Town & Country received a first-place Desjardins Adult and Youth Financial Education Award in its category of $250 million to $1 billion in assets. The award recognizes credit unions’ efforts to teach personal finance concepts and skills to members and nonmembers. Town & Country won in the adult category.

Also among credit unions of $250 million or more in assets, the Minot credit union received a second-place Louise Herring Philosophy-in-Action Member Service Award, given for practical application of credit union philosophy within the actual operation of the credit union and to recognize programs and services that benefit membership.
