Kent and Jake from First Interstate Bank are hitting the streets this week to spread the word about Laramie’s Lemonade Day, Sat. Aug. 10! They are encouraging kids to set up lemonade stands (40 spots left) throughout town. If you are approached by a 1st – 5th grader, please let them set up their stand in front of your business. And, consider ways to cross promote your products with their stand!
The goal of Lemonade Day is to encourage entrepreneurship in Laramie’s youth. Participants receive a workbook to help them prepare a business plan with budgets, costs, stand design, product creation, pricing, marketing, etc.. Prizes will be given for Best Stand and Best Business Plan results. Plus, kids are encouraged to spend some, save some, and share some of their income with national net profits averaging $224 a stand!
