Designed for school age children from kindergarten through high school, the Kids Biz Expo provides an the opportunity to set up a booth/table with a product they feel passionate about.
During previous years, participants have offered everything from lemonade to baked goods, photography, jewelry, walking sticks and other handmade items.
Not only is this a showcase for kids, but an opportunity to understand the elements of owning one’s own business. These young business entrepreneurs will learn and use real-life skills such as math, communication, and creative thinking.
Development and marketing of their product or service will have an impact on their sales at the event and offer them some insight into what it takes to own their own business.
Awards will be given for Most Original Business Idea, Most Creative Presentation, and Highest Business Potential.
