You won’t want to miss Collierville’s first annual Acton Children’s Business Fair, showcasing kids’ entrepreneurial genius! Unique creations featuring handmade gifts, soaps, candles, jewelry, baked goods, and more! Bring your kids and friends, small bills, a big bag, and your appetite! This event is FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
Over 50 area children ages 6-16 have worked hard over the summer to create a product or service, develop a brand, and build a marketing strategy. They are now ready to open for customers at this one-day marketplace. The children are responsible for the setup, sales, and interacting with customers.
“Today’s youth 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 age groups for “Most Business Potential,” “Most Creative Idea,” and “Most Impressive Presentation.”
