Biz Kid DVD Box sets available from NCUF
MADISON, Wis. (3/7/12)--Box sets of the first four seasons of Biz Kid$ are now available from the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF). 

Biz Kid$ is the Emmy Award winning--and credit union-funded--public television series that teaches kids about money management and entrepreneurship.

"Leveraging Biz Kid$ is a great way for credit unions to teach financial literacy concepts in a fun and engaging way in their community," said Danielle Brown, NCUF's national coordinator for Biz Kid$. "With these new box sets, credit unions now have a wealth of episodes on a wide variety of topics at their disposal."

Each Biz Kid$ box set includes DVDs for each episode and a CD with PDFs of the corresponding curriculum for each episode.  Late last year, the foundation also made available Biz Kid$ starter kits, which contain core DVDs and materials to teach Biz Kid$. 

Each box set or starter kit is available for a donation of $60 to NCUF. 

NCUF oversees fundraising, outreach and administrative responsibilities for Biz Kid$, which recently started its fifth season. During the past six years, more than 290 credit unions and affiliated organizations have raised more than $13.2 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."

Biz Kid$, which premiered in January 2008, has aired on more than 340 public television stations in all 50 states with a viewership reach of 271 million people. The show has the highest recorded carriage of any children's program ever released by American Public Television, with a viewing audience of more than 1.2 million per episode. The Biz Kid$

website receives more than 100,000 unique visitors a month.
