Due to COVID19 for the safety of our young entrepreneurs and community we have decided to host the fair virtually! This way our youth are still able to showcase the hard work and dedication they have put into the stat and launch of their business!
Observe the opportunity for children to launch their very own startup business! Kids develop a brand, create a product or service, build a marketing strategy, and then open for customers at our Virtual Fair.
This event is designed to give children the experience of selling a product or service. Please note that you may help your child fill out the application, but depending on their age, they are expected to do as much as possible by themselves.
*Competition will be judged in FOUR age categories: Ages 4-6, 9-12, 13-15, and 16-18 If children of different age groups prepare a booth together, they will be judged in the age group of the oldest participant.
*Please submit by the 2021 deadline
We believe the Children’s Business Fair instills leadership, courage, perseverance, and responsibility into young hearts and minds. This is a great opportunity for parents and mentors to spend quality time with their children. We desire this to be a fun event with many opportunities to learn and grow
AWARD PROCESS & CRITERIA
An awards ceremony will be held immediately following the Children’s Business Fair. All entries will be automatically entered in the business competition, and businesses will be judged on a variety of criteria, including most original business idea, highest business potential, and best presentation/creativity.
This event is sponsored by Acton Academy, the Acton School of Business, and the generous support of our donors and volunteers. We all believe that principled entrepreneurs are heroes and role models for the next generation.
Whether an entrepreneur is famous like Elon Musk or Oprah Winfrey or they are one of the thousands of unsung business owners across this country, these are the people who make sacrifices to innovate, create jobs and serve their communities.
