This event is designed to introduce youth to entrepreneurship through the real-world experience of starting your own business through a lemonade stand. What is a lemonade stand? A lemonade stand is when you set up a table and chairs, a container of lemonade, some glasses, and a sign. With the proper planning, you then sell the lemonade to make a profit.

On the Saturday June 1st we are encouraging youth to set up a Lemonade Stand around Laurel.

Steps to participate:

1) Fill out the registration form and return it to the Chamber (deadline to register May 27th by 4 PM)

2) Pick up a booklet from The Laurel Chamber or print off a packet click  HERE

3) Choose a spot for the lemonade stand and let the Chamber know your location by May 27th at 4 PM (If you are setting up at a business you must have permission from the business owner)

4) Have the stand set up and rockin’ and impress the judges! 10:00 AM-2:00 PM Sat June 1st

5) Complete the remainder of the booklet

6) Drop the completed booklet off at The Laurel Chamber by June 7th at 4 PM (it will be returned to you!)
