Ten young entrepreneurs will take part in the Kids, Inc. Business Showcase at Queen Ka‘ahumanu Center on July 19.

KAHULUI – Queen Ka’ahumanu Center will accept submissions for its annual Kids, Inc. Business Showcase through June 25.

Ten kid-run businesses will win an opportunity to set up shop in the center court of the shopping center on Saturday, July 19, sell their products or services, and keep all the earnings.

Children ages 6-15 may submit their small business concepts via the center’s Facebook page (Facebook.com/QueenKaahumanuCenter). All submissions must be received by June 25 at 11 p.m. Children 12 and under will need a parent or guardian to submit their entry.

Business concepts are expected to have minimal parental involvement, and can include creating something from scratch, offering a service or reselling a product purchased from a wholesaler.

Qualified submissions will be posted on Facebook and open to popular vote June 26 through July 2. The ten concepts that receive the most votes will be announced July 4. Those businesses will be invited to participate in the Kids, Inc. Business Showcase on Saturday, July 19, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Complete program details and official contest rules can be found at Facebook.com/QueenKaahumanuCenter on the “notes” tab.
