CO-OP Financial Services has selected three finalists for the CO-OP THINK Prize 13, a $10,000 grand prize presented by MasterCard. The winner will be announced on May 2 at the THINK 13 Conference in Chicago.
CO-OP THINK Prize 13 is a competition created by CO-OP Financial Services to inspire innovative business solutions to the issues facing the credit union industry.

The finalists were selected from among 25 semi-finalists by judges from CO-OP Financial Services and Filene Research Institute. The winner will be chosen based on judges’ scoring, online voting by credit union employees, and on-site voting by registered THINK 13 Conference attendees. Credit union employees can vote at www.co-opthink.org from March 26 to April 19.
CO-OP Financial Services will be working with the finalists to produce a video that helps the entrants explain their idea, which can take any form such as an innovative application of technology, a new process for back office efficiency, or a fresh approach to industry advertising and marketing. Though the ideas can vary widely, the judging criteria for entries are based on four main standards – impact, creativity, aggregation (the application of the idea across the industry) and implementation (the ability to be adopted).
