JOHNSTON, IOWA (May 2, 2016) – Midwest Heritage in West Des Moines recently received a Best of Iowa Award from the Iowa Bankers Association (IBA) for excellence in bank marketing. The award was presented at a reception during the IBA’s Marketing Conference, held at the West Des Moines Marriott on April 28.

The bank earned a Gold (first-place) Award for its Community and PR campaign, “Youth Heifer Program,” which helped youth get a start in the beef cattle business by awarding bred heifers to program recipients chosen based on merit, future goals and ability to care for the heifers.

Approximately 98 percent of the banks in Iowa are members of the IBA and are eligible to participate in the Best of Iowa Awards competition. A panel of judges from the Indiana Bankers Association selected the award winners based on their objectives, strategy, execution and results.
