The University of Wisconsin-Extension’s “Check Your Free Credit Report Campaign” was entered for the Dean Don Felker Financial Management Award and won first place both nationally and in the central region category. The campaign provides a website that walks consumers through the process of obtaining free credit reports, reading them, and dealing with any errors. The campaign also sends reminders to subscribers three times a year, on 2/2, 6/6, 10/10, reminding them to pull their credit on that day. The campaign currently has more than 720 subscribers.
