Come join the opportunity for children to launch their very own startup business!
Kids, dream up your business, create your product and marketing, then bring it and open for customers at this one-day marketplace. Show the community what you can do!
We will host up to 20 booths at this 1st annual Circleville Children's Business Fair, held at Northridge Church of Christ on Saturday, September 16th, 2023, from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 noon.
This event is sponsored by Northridge Church of Christ, Acton Academy, the Acton School of Business, and the generous support of our donors and volunteers.
Local business leaders and mentors will visit with the children and learn about their businesses, giving the participants a terrific opportunity to talk with adults who can help them grow their business skills. Then, at the conclusion of the fair we will present awards for things like Best Presentation and Most Creative Business Idea. There is a nominal booth fee of $15.00 per booth to simulate a business start-up expense; all money collected from these fees will be used for advertising, awards, and other things that will directly benefit the young entrepreneurs. We want this to be a truly exciting and helpful experience for the students!
Whether an entrepreneur is famous like Elon Musk or is one of the thousands of unsung small business owners across this country, these are the people who make sacrifices to innovate, create jobs and serve their communities.
We believe young people can learn valuable skills, life lessons, and leadership through starting and running a business. We are excited to bring this opportunity to the children of our area.
