LiFE Awards

Recognizing banks and bankers for their financial literacy efforts

Bank Awards

The goal of the Leaders in Financial Education Awards is to acknowledge and honor Texas banks that are dedicated leaders in promoting financial education in their communities. The LiFE Award winners are typically honored at a special luncheon during TBA's Annual Convention. Winning banks receive:
  • A LiFE Award trophy.
  • An article in Texas Banking magazine.
  • Press releases to local and statewide news media and banking publications.
  • Recognition at a special Cornerstone/LiFE Awards luncheon at TBA's Annual Convention or other designated TBA annual event.
