Welcome to the Lubbock Children's Business Fair!

Thank you for believing in your child! We at Kidpreneur Lubbock believe that each child has a gift that can change their world in a profound way.

 

It is our hope that we can help your child continue to learn that they can do hard things, be accountable, and most importantly, that they are capable of much more than they may believe!

Thank you again for being a part of this remarkable event! Please read below for details outlining your role as parents, some rules, and other information.

Important guidelines!

Please keep these in mind.

 

  • This fair is designed to give children a taste of being real entrepreneurs. Please let them have that experience for themselves by letting them do as much of the work as possible, considering their age and ability.

  • Please let the kids come up with their own business idea and their own  product or service to sell. They may need your help to brainstorm, but let the final idea and effort rest with them. We reserve the right to reject any application that we suspect or find evidence of being the parent's business. 

  • You are required to read the fair instructions carefully and ensure you and your kidpreneur(s) follow them.
     

  • Your kidpreneur(s) must be on time for the fair and all deadlines during the process must be met. 
     

  • You are required to check your email and social media on a daily basis and respond accordingly to any communications we send. If emails that require a response are not responded to within 72 hours, your kidpreneur(s) risk losing their spot in the fair.

  • If kidpreneurs would like to make changes to their group members after being approved (adding or removing members), change their product/service, or make any other changes to their initial application, you must send an email to hello@kidpreneurlbk.com detailing the requested changes.  All changes need to be approved by our team.

Supervising Kidpreneurs 

A few tips to get you started.

 

  • Allow your kidpreneur the gift of wonder. Ask open-ended questions and let them figure things out on their own, as much as possible.
     

  • Provide encouraging communication by praising their hard work and effort.
     

  • Encourage enthusiasm by modeling passion and excitement for the Children’s Business Fair and entrepreneurship.

  • Set boundaries and provide backstage organization. Then, let your kidpreneur flourish! 
     

  • This event is meant to be fun and to get kidpreneurs excited about entrepreneurship. Don't let it get too complicated or stressful!
     

  • Talk to your kidpreneur about what they want to learn and help them figure out where to find  those resources. Consider connecting them with family member/friend who is an entrepreneur and can mentor and guide them!
     

  • There is great value in your child not getting everything done perfectly or on time. This will help them learn. Just make sure they create a product or service they are excited about!
     

  • Do not do the work for your kidpreneur, as tempting as it may be! If the product or service looks messy, that is okay; in fact, that is great! Encourage your children to make a good product or service, but never take the role of a business board, manager or owner. Do not rob the work environment of joy by prodding or criticizing. Your child is Chairman, CEO, and Owner. Let your child be those things! Let them make the plans and decisions related to their business (as much as possible). Allow your child the gift of seeing the fruits of their hard work!
