2013 Lemonade Day Alaska Southeast
This year Lemonade Day was May 11, 2013~~~http://alaska.lemonadeday.org/
The objective of Lemonade Day Alaska is to give children of all socio-economic backgrounds, in all neighborhoods, the opportunity to learn about starting their own business. We will have 3,500 registrations for Lemonade Day Alaska 2013
In 2012, in the region of Southeast Alaska 500 backpacks with work books were handed out to children for Lemonade Day Alaska. Approximately 300 kids registered with the help of caring adults, and put up lemonade stands across the Southeast region of Alaska. We hope to have more participation next year, and more volunteers! You can bring Lemonade Day Alaska to your town, too!
Within the entire state of Alaska, approximately 2,200 kids registered with a caring adult and put up lemonade stands across Alaska. What a great success! We are looking forward to next year! This program is important because we are seeing these kids grow to become Alaska's young entrepreneurs, and the next generation of business owners in Alaska! The program is free for all kids, and we couldn't do it with out our sponsors. Thank you. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
today to become a sponsor.
Thank you to the University of Alaska Southeast in Juneau, School of Management,
for being a sponsor of Lemonade Day Alaska 2012.
Lemonade Day is a nation-wide event that teaches kids the skills they need to be successful in the future. Youth learn to set goals, develop a business plan, establish a budget, seek investors, provide customer service, and give back to the community. Lemonade Day is the perfect opportunity for a community to show kids they care and train the next generation of entrepreneurs through a FREE, fun, engaging, and experiential activity.

Lemonade Day Alaska Steering Committee – please join our volunteer group with the objective of organizing Lemonade Day Alaska.
Young people participate for FREE. It begins when they register to participate and receive a Lemonade Day backpack full of resources. The young person and a caring adult complete each lesson together. Youth of all ages, pre-K through high school, can participate at no cost. Youth put their new knowledge and skills to work when they open for business on May 11 with their very own lemonade stand.
Past Success: Anchorage held its first Lemonade Day, May 1, 2011 with more than 1100 kids participating. These youth sold 91,000 glasses of lemonade, earned revenues of $149,000 and contributed more than $19,000 to local charities.
Community Event: there are opportunities for participation for families, businesses, schools, youth and community organizations, as well as faith based groups. All can unite for a common purpose – training the next generation of entrepreneurs.

Consider being a sponsor or supporter of Lemonade Day Alaska!
As a supporter you can represent Lemonade Day directly in our communities, spreading the word and building the excitement around Lemonade Day 2012 – we couldn't do it without you! Here are some things that you or your business can do to support Lemonade Day 2012 in your community --
Our Objective: We aim to spread the word about Lemonade Day 2012, while gathering support and business partnerships.
Business Participation: Get excited! Our top priority is to promote the youth entrepreneurs because they are our future business owners, so even helping out a little bit can make a large impact on a child’s life. This is the first part of inspiring youth to participate in the structure of their community. Even if you don’t participate as a supporter, you can inspire our youth to follow their dreams and beyond!
As an individual or a business, these are three ways you can support youth involved in Lemonade Day:
Donation – Record your business or individual information and pledge amount on the Pledge Card, and keep in touch! Donating funds or prize incentives for contests are encouraged.
Host a stand at your business’ location – Make sure to fill out the backside of the Pledge Card. Once we have the information, you will receive a How to Host a Stand form to keep.
Put a cling-on in the window - If you only want to hang a cling-on, you will only need to check the box on the form, fill out your name (so we know who approved it) and the Organization (so we know where the cling-ons are hanging) on the Pledge Card.
4. Support The Youth – Tell everyone you know and buy Lemonade on Lemonade Day!
For any type of support, we would like the business to fill out a Lemonade Day Pledge Card. This is important, because we want to track which businesses have been approached, and what their responses are to our outreach. If a business refuses the opportunity to support, we will make a note of this on the Additional Notes and Business Declines on the backside of this sheet. We want to be respectful and make sure businesses don’t get approached multiple times.
Remember… You are the reason that Lemonade Day is possible! Thank you very much for your time and your support of our youth’s future. After the lemonade is sold all decisions are made by the youth including how the money is spent, though the lessons encourage them to “spend some—set a goal; save some—for the future; and to share some—with their community.”
The more you believe in Lemonade Day, the more you will inspire others to believe in it, too!
