MADISON, Wis. (6/20/13)--Biz Kid$, a credit union-funded public television series that teaches kids about money management and entrepreneurship, has won a national Emmy Award, television's highest honor.

This is the second Emmy Award for Biz Kid$. The show won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Achievement in Main Title and Graphic Design in 2009. It has been nominated for 13 Emmy Awards in the past five years.

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.

The National Credit Union Foundation oversees fundraising, outreach and administrative responsibilities of Biz Kid$. During 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.

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."

The Emmy Awards recognize creative leadership for artistic, educational and technical achievements within the television industry. The Daytime Emmy Awards recognize outstanding achievement in all creative fields of daytime television production. The series also was nominated for Outstanding Achievement in Sound Mixing and Outstanding Achievement in Sound Editing.
