BizKid$ Nominated For Three Daytime Emmys
MADISON, Wis. (5/15/13)--Biz Kid$, the credit union-funded public television series that teaches kids about money management and entrepreneurship, has received three Daytime Emmy Award nominations from the National Academy of Television Arts & Science.

"These nominations are a testament to the quality of the show" said Danielle Brown, Biz Kid$ program coordinator for the National Credit Union Foundation. "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." 

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. Awards will be presented June 14 in Los Angeles. 

Biz Kid$ received 13 Emmy nominations in the past five years, winning once in 2009. The Daytime Emmy Awards recognize excellence in American daytime television programming. Emmys are considered the television equivalent to the Academy Awards (for film), Grammy Awards (for music) and Tony Awards (for stage).

Biz Kid$ has continually garnered attention in and outside of the credit union industry. The show has won the Environmental Media Award for Outstanding Children's Television Series, a Silver Telly Award for Outstanding Children's Financial Literacy Programming and most recently the Parent's Choice Gold Award.

In 2010, it also earned the credit union industry's most prestigious honor, the Herb Wegner Award for Outstanding Program.

NCUF oversees fundraising, outreach and administrative responsibilities of Biz Kid$. During the past six years, more than 300 credit unions and affiliated organizations have raised at least $13.8 million to support the show's production, website and curriculum.

Every Biz Kid$ episode begins and ends with a narrator reminding viewers that: "Production funding for Biz Kid$ is provided by America's Credit Unions, where people are worth more than money."
