Biz Kid$ Receives Three Emmy Nominations
Wednesday, May 15, 2013 6:15 AM

Biz Kid$ recently received three Daytime Emmy Award nominations from the National Academy of Television Arts & Science. The series was nominated in the categories of Outstanding Achievement in a Single Camera Editing, Outstanding Achievement in Sound Mixing, and Outstanding Achievement in Sound Editing. The awards will be given on June 14 in Los Angeles, Calif.

Biz Kid$ is a credit union-funded public television series that teaches kids about money management and entrepreneurship. Biz Kid$ has now received 13 Emmy nominations in the last five years, winning once in 2009.

“These nominations are a testament to the quality of the show” said Danielle Brown, Biz Kid$ Program Coordinator for the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF). “As a financial literacy resource, Biz Kid$ continues to teach millions of young people how to make and manage their money – something that is needed now more than ever.”

NCUF oversees fundraising, outreach and administrative responsibilities of Biz Kid$. Over the past six years, more than 300 credit unions and affiliated organizations have raised more than $13.8 million that has supported the show’s production, website and curriculum.

“The Texas Credit Union Foundation is a huge supporter of Biz Kid$,” said TCUF Executive Director Courtney Moran. “Biz Kid$ helps kids learn and grow into smart and financially responsible adults.”

In fact, TCUF supported the production of seasons 1-5. TCUF, as part of the Foundation FOCUS financial literacy campaign, is incorporating Biz Kid$ in its free “Train the Trainer” sessions. This one-day, interactive and hands on training program is open to credit union staff, teachers and community partners interested in teaching or distributing the National Endowment for Financial Education High School Financial Planning Program (NEFE HSFPP) and/or Biz Kid$.
