The Lemonade Stand

Lemonade Stand


This summer, your child has the opportunity to take part in a fun, interactive event in Kearney, NE. They will learn about small business concepts like counting change, selling to customers, making a product, marketing a business and much more. The short hands-on lessons will be taught by the entrepreneurship professionals at UNK’s Center for Entrepreneurship and Rural Development.

The lessons will be taught to 4th and 5th grade students at KCLC the week of June 7-10.

An evening session is offered for students entering the 4th and 5th grade from Kearney and the surrounding area who are not a part of KCLC on Monday, June 7 from 6:30-8:00 pm.

The second part of this program involves setting up lemonade stands in Kearney. Each student will have the opportunity to set up a Lemonade Stand and sell lemonade to customers as part of the “Lemonade Tasting Tour” on Thursday, June 10 between 3:00-8:00 pm. This is a great opportunity for each student to put the small business skills they learn into action. This event is optional and will require the involvement of a parent, guardian or another adult mentor. We will provide more details as the event draws closer, but the students can either set up to sell at their home or business of their choosing. We are happy to help connect students to a business where they can sell their lemonade.

If you would like to have your child participate in the Lemonade Stand evening workshop on June 7th, click the “Register Now” button below.

We have also created an event for this on Facebook; Feel free to like our page and share this event on your page with your friends to let them know your child would like their support at their Lemonade Stand!
