U.S. Bank Honored at Oregon Sports Awards

PORTLAND, Ore., Feb 2, 2004 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- U.S. Bancorp (NYSE:USB)

U.S. Bank was recognized for two decades of support for the Oregon School Activities Association (OSAA) at the Oregon Sports Awards during a ceremony recently. The Oregon Sports Awards took place at the Nike World Campus' Tiger Woods Center in Beaverton, Oregon.

Mike Michael, president of U.S. Bank in Oregon, accepted the Les Schwab Friend of Sports Award on behalf of the company. The award honors an individual, group or corporation that has made sustained and substantial contributions to local sports programs or events.

"The more than $3 million U.S. Bank has contributed to the OSAA over the years has made it possible for students across Oregon to experience the thrill of competing in a state championship event," said Michael. "U.S. Bank is honored to receive this award, and we are committed to continuing our tradition of support for the OSAA."

"This award clearly illustrates U.S. Bank's continued commitment to high school students in Oregon," said Tom Welter, executive director of the OSAA. "The OSAA is very proud to have worked with U.S. Bank as a title sponsor since 1984. During the past 20 years more than two million students in our 284 member schools have participated in our state championship events and benefited from our partnership with U.S. Bank. We look forward to working with U.S. Bank in the future to positively impact the next generation of high school students in our state."

OSAA is a nonprofit organization dedicated to ensuring equitable competition for Oregon high school students through OSAA-sponsored events. The organization sponsors 80 state championships for students competing in 16 interscholastic activities.
