Want to buy local and support students at the same time?
The community is invited to École Glenbrook Middle School on Thursday, Feb. 21 for the school’s annual entrepreneurial fair.
The fair, now in its third year, is meant to showcase the business talents of students. Preparation for the event includes deciding on an item or service to sell, developing a business plan and creating a table display. The students are also in charge of processing the sales on the night of the event, according to an event write-up.
At past fairs, students have sold everything from homemade cards, jewelry, crafts, woodworks and snacks. Slime has also been incredibly popular.
Students are encouraged to donate 10 per cent of their profits to a charity of their choice. The rest they get to keep.
“Come see what our students are up to and support the next generation of entrepreneurs,” notes the write-up.
This is a cash-only event, and there will be pizza available for purchase, too. It runs from 6:30 to 9 p.m. in the school gym. Glenbrook is located at 701 Park Cres.
