Every year, Choice Bank celebrates the achievements of team members who leave lasting footprints in our company’s growth and prosperity through the Choice Footprints Award.

Choice employees nominate their coworkers for this prestigious award based on their People First passion and values. Footprints Award finalists are selected from over 100 nominations by our executive team.
