Lemonade Day 2022 for Fond du Lac County Registering Teams Now!
A Youth Fundraising Project that Teaches How to Run a Business: Save. Spend. Share.
Since 2015, Lemonade Day has been a tradition in the Fond du Lac County. Registration is happening NOW! to create your youth team that plans their own business in their community…a lemonade stand that opens on Lemonade Day: May 7, 2022!
Any 4-H youth, 3-6th grade, with an adult, can form a team (youth of other grade levels can join in to help those in 3-6th grade). Your club or even an individual family can create a team. This is a short-term fun project that has teachable moments about real world skills of starting a business along with the fun of designing a lemonade stand to make money! What a great fund-raising project for your club!
Youth designs their stand, picks a location (usually in front of a business that has good visibility), and open up on May 7th from 11a-2pm. Judges then visit the stands to choose awards on their stands. A youth chosen as ‘Entrepreneur’ of the county has an opportunity to win a national award.
Lemonade Day is a no-cost program but registration is required. The lessons can be done in as little as 4 meetings. The UW Extension office has the free lesson books, and can also assist with teaching the lessons. Materials are made possible by the generous donation from Society Insurance, and UW-Madison/Division of Extension and other community organizations in Fond du Lac County.

Deadline to form a team is April 8, 2022!
