SMC is looking for business ideas from budding young entrepreneurs 7 to 16! Encourage youth to enter their ideas today in the 2nd Annual "Grow Your Own Business Challenge," sponsored by the Fairholme Foundation. The grand prize is $5,000 plus a chance to meet Mr. Buffett. Teachers win prizes, too! Direct youth to the Secret Millionaires' website http://www.smclearnandearn.com/learnandearn/aboutthecontest.
The Secret Millionaires Club Learn & Earn program teaches financial literacy and entrepreneurship through activities for the classroom, home, and other settings where students and families learn. It was developed to extend the lessons of the Secret Millionaires Club webisodes and prime-time TV specials, both of which feature Warren Buffett.
The second annual “Grow Your Own Business Challenge” is accepting submissions between December 3, 2012 and February 15, 2013. Individuals or teams of 2 to 4 students, ages 7 to 16, will have an opportunity to submit their entries to win prizes and a chance to meet Mr. Buffett!
