Created by the Michigan chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS), the Michigan EMMY® represents the most experienced and talented television professionals from all disciplines of the industry and from all of Michigan's 11 television markets. Winners were announced at the 38th EMMY® Gala on June 18, 2016 at the MotorCity Casino Sound Board Theater in Detroit.
Based on Ally Bank's Wallet Wise Program, each of the vignettes for the PSA focuses on a basic money skill or concept for DPTV's young audience.
Entitled, "My Two Cents: Learn to Earn", "My Two Cents: Money Tree", "The Power of Money: Assemble", "The Power of Money: Kid Calculator" and "The Power of Money: The Spendthrift", the vignettes can be viewed here.
Stinson and Thornton were also nominated for two other Emmy awards for their work on Oakland Basketball All Access (with Jim Grassle, FTVM '11) and for their short documentary feature on Conant Gardens, created for DPTV's Detroit Neighborhoods project.
