The North Dakota High School Activities Association (NDHSAA) recently announced a five-year extension of Farmers Union Insurance’s (FUI) designation as the organization’s Premier Partner of extra and co-curricular activities for students in North Dakota. The extended agreement supports a wide range of high school events through the 2025-26 academic year, including six annual scholarships for the NDHSAA Distinguished Student Program.

“We are thrilled to continue our partnership with Farmers Union Insurance. They have demonstrated a commitment to the NDHSAA and its 171 member schools, as well as high school students and fans across the state,” said Matt Fetsch, NDHSAA executive director.

Farmers Union Insurance has been NDHSAA’s Premier Partner since 2008. “We’ve proudly sponsored, supported and celebrated high school students, both on and off the field, for years,” said Mark Anderson, chief executive officer of FUI. “Our investment in young people and in our local communities ties closely with FUI’s objective of building stronger communities.”

Over 30,000 North Dakota students participate annually in 22 sports and fine arts activities NDHSAA sponsors.

FUI is one of few companies in the state that maintain a large investment portfolio in North Dakota, constantly reinvesting in businesses and communities, Anderson said. With more than 325 captive and independent agents in North Dakota, Utah and Arkansas, the company provides insurance products and services to individuals, families and businesses.
