Credit unions – Be proud! Biz Kid$ receives national recognition

Biz Kid$, the powerful youth financial education program, has taught millions of kids across the US about money and entrepreneurship. Not only is Biz Kid$ a fun TV series for children to watch and engage with, it teaches critical lessons in financial management that will inevitably increase their likelihood of having a successful financial future.

Through the power of collaboration, a coalition of over 300 credit unions and affiliates from across the country have helped exclusively fund Biz Kid$ donating over $15 million. In fact, each of the 71 Biz Kid$ episodes begins and ends with a 15-second video reminding viewers that: “Production funding for Biz Kid$ is provided by America’s Credit Unions, where people are worth more than money.”

So, without credit unions and their focus on youth financial education, Biz Kid$ would not exist. Nor would it have received its FOURTEENTH Emmy Nomination this year! We are so excited to announce that Biz Kid$ has once again been nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing in a Children’s Program! This nomination is for the brand new Season 6 of Biz Kid$ that was released last year, thanks to the donation and support of the credit union movement.
