Foundation Launches National Biz Kid$ Showcase

March 16, 2021

The National Credit Union Foundation launched the first-ever national Biz Kid$ Showcase, this week. In partnership with the Southeastern Credit Union Foundation, CrossState Credit Union Foundation, the RMJ Foundation, the Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation and the Credit Union Association of New Mexico, the Biz Kid$ Showcase will allow creativity to continue in our current virtual world. 

Biz Kid$ is a credit union-funded and branded financial education program for young adults, championed by the National Credit Union Foundation. Biz Kid$ gives students the opportunity to invest in their financial futures through lessons on entrepreneurship, money, managing finances, and more.

As a participant in the Biz Kid$ Showcase, students will complete learning modules and earn points. Participants will have until April 30 to submit their showcase work. The top three business plans from each state will be awarded a cash prize and move on to national-level judging. 

At the national level, the three students with the highest point totals from each state will be judged by a second panel of credit union “investors”. The top three business plans from across the country will be awarded a cash prize.

Registration will be available through April 26, 2021.
