Lemonade Academy

June 8, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

What is Lemonade Academy?

Sprocket Makerspace, the McCracken County Public Library, RISE West Kentucky, and the Paducah Area Chamber stand ready to help. Channel all that raw entrepreneurial energy in the right direction this summer when you enroll your budding tycoon in the first ever session of Lemonade Academy.

Lemonade Academy is a program that teaches kids grades 3rd through 8th leadership and business skills by training them to launch and operate a lemonade stand. They’ll enjoy courses like Business 101, Lemonade Mixology, Marketing/Branding and Promotion as well as Stand Construction Theory from an impressive panel of local presenters over the course of two super fun Saturday workshops

How does it work?

We’ll pair them with an expert mentor from the Paducah Area Chamber of Commerce, make sure they get a “business license”, school them in art of food safety, and help them pick the perfect place from which to pitch their product.

Then, on Lemonade Saturday, June 22nd from 9 a.m. to noon(ish), we’ll promote their stand location—where an adult must be present at all times–and cheer them on to total market dominance (or at least better business skills).

Best of all Lemonade Academy is absolutely FREE, but limited to the first 30 participants that sign on, so don’t delay. Students who complete both workshops will receive an OFFICIAL Lemonade Academy tee-shirt to wear on the big day.
