RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. (3/12/13)--CO-OP Financial Services has named three finalists for its CO-OP THINK Prize 13, a competition to inspire innovative solutions to the issues confronting the credit union industry.

The three finalists were selected from among 25 semi-finalists by judges from CO-OP Financial Services and Filene Research Institute. The winner of the CO-OP THINK Prize 13 will be announced May 2 at the THINK 13 in Chicago.
