Children’s Business Fair scheduled for March 18 9 a.m. to noon.

For the fair, kids ages eight through 18 create a product or service, develop a brand, build a marketing strategy, and then open for customers for a one-day marketplace. The children are responsible for the setup, sales, and interacting with customers.

The kids will be mentored along the way. Kids can be solo entrepreneurs or be part of a team of up to three youth. Students younger than 8 can be a part of the team as apprentices, but must have someone 8 or older as the lead.

Prizes will be awarded for various categories within each age group and will include some cash prizes.
