2020 Children’s Business Fair in Springfield MO

Mar 4, 2021 | News, Press Release

Life360 Community Services is pleased to announce their annual Children’s Business Fair on April 10 from 10 am to 2 pm in the Fairbanks location at 1126 N. Broadway Ave, Springfield, Mo. 

The Springfield Children’s Business Fair is open to children ages 0-18 to showcase their small businesses to the public. This event is free and open to the public. 

Each child creates a product or service, develops a brand, builds a marketing strategy, and opens to the public in this one-day chance to highlight their business. Kids are responsible for setup, sales, and customer service. Any parent seen promoting the child’s business will automatically disqualify the child from the competition. 

“Today’s youth are tomorrow’s business innovators and leaders. The Children’s Business Fair gives students the opportunity to spread their entrepreneurial wings and get a head start on promising business careers,” said Jeff Sandefer, founder of the Acton School of Business.

Winners of each age group (6-7, 8-10, 11-12, and 13-14) for the “Most Business Potential,” “Most Creative Idea,” and “Most Impressive Presentation,” will be awarded a $50 cash prize.
