LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Registration has begun for a program teaching kids about entrepreneurship using a lemonade stand.
Online applications are available for this year’s Lemonade Day. The event is separated between elementary students and junior-senior high schools students.
Last year more than 500 kids participated. This year organizers are expecting more than 700.
Organizers said there are some important tools kids can learn from opening a lemonade stand.
“They’ll learn all sorts of concepts that are focused around entrepreneurship. They’ll learn about setting budgets, setting goals, about saving some money and spending some money and giving some of that away to charity,” said Greater Lafayette Small Business Program manager Sarah Yelich.
Judges will give out awards for best tasting lemonade and best looking stand.
This will be the fourth year for the event, which will occur on May 17.
