Children’s Business Fair 2013
Financial Futures Now is hosting its very first annual Children’s Business Fair. The event will be held during ‘Financial Literacy Month’, Saturday, April 27, from 10 am – 1pm at the Severna Park Community Center located at 623 Baltimore-Annapolis Boulevard, Severna Park, Maryland 21146.
As an organization dedicated to teaching America’s youth on the basic principles of financial literacy, we are celebrating Financial Literacy Month by hosting a children’s business fair to encourage aspiring young entrepreneurs. We believe that entrepreneurship is an integral part of building and sustaining wealth.
The event is open to children between the ages of 7 – 16. There will be cash prizes awarded for originality, business presentation and potential in each age category (7-9, 10-12, 14-16). Children will also benefit from workshops prior to the fair on business planning, banking, and marketing. Applications are available on our website and are due by March 29, 2013. All participants will pay a $10.00 entry fee which can also be paid online. Sponsorship information is also available on the website.
Proceeds from the event will be donated to Anne Arundel County Casa, advocates for and support for abused and neglected children who are involved in the juvenile court system (www.aacasa.org) located at 94 Franklin Street, Annapolis, Maryland 21401.
