Through our new Student Ventures Program, middle school girls will be able to sell their own creative products at this year’s Winterfest in December. Winterfest is Hamlin’s much-anticipated, magically festive annual event to celebrate community. Led by Grade 7 student Maddy (with parent and administrative support), the Hamlin Student Ventures Program will provide guidance for budding girl entrepreneurs this autumn.
What is the purpose of this program?
-To create and develop a product
-To market and sell this product at Winterfest
-To learn about entrepreneurship
-To give back to Hamlin
-To earn a profit
How does the Student Ventures Program work?
-Interested students will fill out an application
-Students may apply as individuals or in groups (groups are encouraged)
-All participants must have a sponsoring adult (parent or guardian)
-Participants will complete a business plan
-Students will have the opportunity to meet with Hamlin parent entrepreneurs to receive feedback and support
-All participants will have selling space at the Winterfest marketplace
I’m most excited about what students are going to learn from the parent entrepreneur mentors, it will be a great experience.
