Lemonade Day is Coming to Starkville!

8-18-18 - Starkville, MS– Lemonade Day is a free, fun, experiential learning program that teaches kids how to start, own and operate their very own business – a lemonade stand. Lemonade Day has spread to over 57 cities in 23 states and 3 countries. We are proud to announce that this year Starkville kids will get to join in on the fun.

A kickoff celebration is planned for Saturday, June 30th from 9:00-10:00 a.m. at GLO, 419 East Lampkin Street, across the street from the Central Station Grill. Our 2018 City Champion is Mark Castleberry, Owner of Castle Properties. Featured sponsors and partners include: Castle Properties, Mississippi State College of Business, Mississippi State Entrepreneurship Center and Cadence Bank.

Each child that registers receives a FREE backpack with an Entrepreneur Workbook or access to an online interactive program that teaches them the valuable lessons of Lemonade Day - including how to set a goal, make a plan, work the plan and achieve their dreams. Once a youth pays their investor back, they keep all of the money they earn and are encouraged to spend some, save some, and share some of their profit.

Anyone and everyone can be involved in Lemonade Day! Young entrepreneurs with lemonade stands need mentors, investors, business partners, great locations, and customers! Sponsors and volunteers are also needed to make Lemonade Day a success.

Lemonade Day Starkville will be August 18th, 2018; our goal is to register 100 youth who in turn will start new businesses all across Starkville - on a single day. Learn more at lemonadeday.org/starkville; join us on Facebook at: Starkville Lemonade Day.
