Lemonade Day Louisiana
BATON ROUGE- Over the past five years, Lemonade Day Louisiana has given over 50,000 children across the state the opportunity to become entrepreneurs. On Saturday, May 2nd, these young entrepreneurs will participate in the fifth annual Lemonade Day, which is set to be the largest to date.
The program was introduced by entrepreneurs John Georges and Todd Graves in 2010 and has become an annual tradition in Louisiana. It's a free, community-wide program that fosters entrepreneurship and character development among Louisiana's youth.
The young entrepreneurs are given a backpack, which has detailed support materials like a workbook, marketing tips, and a mentor guide. The kids then use these materials to start a lemonade stand. The young business owners are encouraged to spend a little, share a little, and save a little bit of their profits.
Registration for the event is free and all children are encouraged to participate. You can register your children online at Lemonade Day Louisiana's Website. For a comprehensive map of stands around the state, visit the official site for a map of stand locations.
