Lemonade Stand Program

Lemonade Stand Idol Contest™

We would like to create an idol contest but with a little twist - a lemonade stand contest. There are many reality and idol shows going on and we would like to work with kids and give kids the opportunities to showcase their talents in business - the lemonade stand business.

We would like you to sit back after your lemonade stand business experience and reflect on what you have learned and celebrate your accomplishments.  How did you do? What did you learn? How would you do it differently?

This is kind of like "America's Idol" in which you show us your talent and we award a winner. Eventually we would like other kids to participate in the judging, but for now we will judge and award kids.

How to Enter 


We would like the following information (as much as possible but one category is ok);

  •  pictures (photos or your drawings of your lemonade stand, we are very interested in your creativity in your lemonade stand design -  what you used for your lemonade stand),

  •  product - recipe you chose, how you made the lemonade

  • services - what services did you provide beyond your lemonade product

  • advertisements and promotional copy( how did you let people know about your lemonade stand)

  • selling approach - what did you say to people to get them to buy your lemonade

  • customer satisfaction - testimonials from customers (what your customers thought about your lemonade stand), what customers think of your service and your lemonade

  • team - people that helped you (team members - what did each person do)

  •  business plans (the steps you took to get organized and to set-up your lemonade stand, the location you chose, all the decisions you had to make to get started)

  • performance - how long were you in business, how much did you sell, how many people passed by, how many stopped at your stand, how many purchased your lemonade? 

Contest Date:

The Lemonade Stand contest is ongoing with no deadlines. We don't want to exclude any young entrepreneurs.

Based on the level of participation,  we will change things accordingly. We will try and respond to participants within a few weeks and present awards every few months. The "Lemonade Stand Entrepreneur Of The Year™  Award" will be awarded within a month of the end of the year.

You can send the information by  e-mail through contact us. Subject: Lemonade Stand Contest.
