Jun 19, 2008 (12:06 PM EDT)


NEW YORK, June 19 /PRNewswire/ -- What better way to teach your kids about money and business than helping them launch their first lemonade stand? To start building the entrepreneurs of tomorrow, Inc.com, the national small-business and entrepreneurship website and online edition of Inc. magazine, today announced that it is hosting its third annual "Best Lemonade Stand in America" contest for kids ages 5 to 12.

The editors of Inc.com are asking all promising future CEOs to submit digital photos of themselves and their lemonade stands along with a short essay describing what it's like to run a really small business. Essays will ask each kid-trepreneur to tell Inc.com about their "business," including what motivated them to go into the lemonade trade, what they named their stands, what products they used in their secret recipe, and how much money they made in a single weekend. Entry forms are available at www.inc.com/lemonade .

The contest will run through August 18. Readers will be able to view all photo and essay submissions and vote for their favorite at www.inc.com/lemonade . Each week Inc.com editors will choose a lemonade stand of the week that will be featured on the Inc.com website. In addition, three grand prize winners will be picked. The "Overall Winner" will receive a $1,000 college savings bond and a Nintendo DS. The winner of "Best Story" and "Best Design" will each be awarded $500 college savings bond along with a Nintendo DS.

The Inc.com editors will pick the final winner and post online the week of August 25th. Check out the winners from last year's contest at www.inc.com/lemonade .
