Children’s Business Fair

Basic Rules & Guidelines

• The Children's Business Fair (CBF) will establish a FIRM cap of participants based on location and resources.
• The CBF will take great care to limit the number of businesses in specific categories so as not to have too many similar business concepts.
• If an applicant’s business idea is similar to entries that were accepted before the applicant’s submission, the CBF will notify the applicant and provide the opportunity to resubmit a new application.
• Applicants must be between the ages of 6 - 16 on or before the APPLICATION OPEN date.
• All entries will be automatically entered in the business competition, and booths will be judged by local entrepreneurs on a variety of criteria, including most original business idea, highest business potential, and best presentation/creativity.
• No businesses requiring electricity or generators will be allowed.
• Each booth consists of a space for a 6 to 8 foot table. In most circumstances, the CBF will be able to provide some picnic tables - FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED. Table covers are not provided.
• No more than 3 participants per booth/business idea.
• Parents of younger children (9 YEARS OLD OR YOUNGER) may sit in their booth, but the children are to be responsible for setup, sales and interacting with the customers.
• This event is designed to give children a taste of selling a product. Please let them have that experience.
Any parent seen selling to the customer or promoting the child’s product will result in disqualification from the competition.

JUDGING:
Three judges will walk around the event to judge the various businesses on the following categories. Judges will ask questions about the KIDpreneur businesses and complete a checklist.


• Most Original Business Idea
