Biz Kid$ returns for a new season – taking a close look at the economy, businesses that give back, and how to make good financial choices. Season 5 launched in January on public television stations around the country. Produced in high-definition, every half-hour episode focuses on a financial theme and profiles inspiring young entrepreneurs and social philanthropists.
The National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) oversees fundraising, outreach and administrative responsibilities of Biz Kid$, which is underwritten completely by a coalition of credit unions and credit union organizations.
Episodes from the new 13-part series focus on businesses going green and being socially conscious, understanding financial institutions, running a fundraiser, evaluating investment opportunities, recognizing media manipulation, learning accounting principles, choosing a business structure, and becoming independent. The season will conclude with a profile of Beaverhead Ranch in Montana, winner of a national contest to find “America’s Favorite Family Business.” Additionally, the new season pushes Biz Kid$ past 65 total episodes and into broadcast syndication.
Biz Kid$ takes a fun and funny approach to financial literacy, with comic sketches and silly antics that appeal to kids from late elementary through high school. Hosted by a group of young people, the series teaches the importance of giving back to the community and the basics of smart money management based on national financial literacy educational standards.
