Metro Birmingham Alabama Children’s Business Fair

Press Release

Location: Fairfield, AL

COULD A TEN-YEAR-OLD INVENT THE NEXT ÜBER?

Find out at the Metro Birmingham Children’s Business Fair, showcasing kids’ entrepreneurial genius!

On Saturday, April 21, 2018 from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm, the 1st annual Metro Birmingham Children’s Business Fair will host up to 25 young entrepreneurs at {TBD}. This event is FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.

Kids create a product or service, develop a brand, build a marketing strategy, and then open for customers at this one-day marketplace. The children are responsible for the setup, sales, and interacting with customers, and any parent seen selling to the customer or promoting the child’s product will result in disqualification from the competition.

This event is hosted by BRAVE, Inc. and Renew Refresh Reset Your Life and sponsored by Acton Academy, the Acton School of Business, and the generous support of our donors and volunteers, who 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 one of the thousands of unsung business owners across this country, these entrepreneurs are the people who make sacrifices to innovate, create jobs, and serve their communities.

“Today’s youths are tomorrow’s business innovators and leaders. The Children’s Business Fair gives students the opportunity to spread their entrepreneurial wings and get a head start on promising business careers,” said Jeff Sandefer, founder of the Acton School of Business, one of the sponsors of the fair.

Cash prizes of $50 will be awarded in each of the four age groups (6-7, 8-10, 11-12, and 13-14) for “Most Business Potential,” “Most Creative Idea,” and “Most Impressive Presentation.”

Both adult sponsors and shockingly articulate kids are available for interviews on camera or off.

You can download and share flyer here and complete your child’s application here..  And by all means, please share on your social media pages and with your other spheres of influence.
