Originally started in Austin, Texas, the Acton Children's Business Fair (ACBF) has grown to cities including Chicago, Phoenix, Grand Rapids, Dallas, and Los Angeles.
Metro RVA Teens is proud to partner with ACBF to host the 1st Annual Richmond Children's Business Fair on Saturday, March 10, 2018 from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm.
There will be a $20 entry fee per business. Age categories include: 6-7, 8-10, 11-12, 13-14, and 15-17. prizes for the different age groups.
All entries will automatically be entered into the business competition. Booths will be judged in three categories: most original business idea, highest business potential, and best presentation/creativity. Cash prizes of $50 per category and age group (to be split among the business owners) will be presented at the conclusion of the fair.
This event is sponsored by Acton Academy and the Acton School of Business. Other sponsors and partners will be announced in January 2018. 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.
