More than 20 area youth will participate in Lemonade Day’s annual “Best Tasting
Lemonade” Contest. The event, which kicks-off the Lemonade 2013 festivities, will be Judged by local celebrity judges including, the Black Tie Denver’s Penny Parker, Troy Guard, owner and chef of TAG Restaurant Group, and representatives from Young Americans Bank and LiveWell Colorado.
The contest isn’t just made up of lemon juice, sugar & water, but it also includes large amounts of
peer mentoring, creativity and teamwork. The 15-20 contestants were randomly selected from early Lemonade Day registrants throughout the community. It’s still not too late for other children to join the fun! During the event, children can sign up for Lemonade Day and receive a special backpack filled with instructional materials that will guide them through the process of developing their lemonade stand.

ABOUT LEMONADE DAY:
Lemonade Day is a FREE, community-wide, educational initiative designed to teach children how to start, own and operate their own business-a lemonade stand. Kids of all ages learn to set goals, develop a plan, secure an investor, create a product, make a profit and give back to their community.
On Sunday, June 9, 2013, young entrepreneurs set up their lemonade stand business and this is the day for the entire community to support youth. If you’re not selling on Lemonade day, you’re buying it. The kids get to keep the money they make and are encouraged to save a little, spend a little and share a little with the community.
