Do you enjoy encouraging the entrepreneurial spirit in kids?

Learning Leaf is partnering with Hilliard Kiwanis to host Take 2 of the Third Annual Kids’ Business Fair in Hilliard. We believe that children, when allowed to unleash their creativity, can accomplish great things. We hope that you will be a part of building kids’ confidence!

This event is FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC and will be held on April 9, 2022 from 9a to 11a at 3691 Main St, Hilliard, OH 43026 (where the Farmer’s Market is held but we will be inside).

What is the Kids’ Business Fair? Kids create a product or service, develop a brand, build a marketing strategy, and then open for customers at this one-day marketplace. The day of the fair, children will be assigned a booth and are responsible for the setup, sales, and interacting with customers.

Why are we contacting you? The Kids’ Business Fair is seeking the generous support of sponsors and volunteers, who believe that instilling entrepreneurship in kids is an invaluable life experience that helps them to develop practical skills like organization, money management, problem solving and communication!

We are seeking both business mentors and financial contributions to help make this fair possible. We hope to award cash prizes of $50 to the young entrepreneurs of the four age groups (6-9, 9-11, 12-14, 14-16) for “Most Business Potential,” “Most Creative,” and “Best Presentation” with a possible fourth category of “Judges Choice.”

Your contributions will help fund marketing for the fair, signage, prizes for the young entrepreneurs, and t-shirts for all participants and volunteers. You can donate here: 

If a financial contribution is not possible, donating your time could be even more invaluable. We are seeking business mentors to attend a Business Planning Workshop on (date and location to be determined) to discuss with each kid-run business their business plan and help guide them through thinking about things like cost, quantity and marketing. We will also need volunteers the day of the event as parents are not allowed to help them so we like to have volunteers available particularly for the younger businesses in case they need help making change or handling customers. To sign up: 

Thank you in advance for your support! 

Sincerely,

Kids’ Business Fair of Hilliard Committee
