Albion Elementary’s young entrepreneurs unveiled their latest product inventions on Thursday. The sixth annual Young Entrepreneur Fair took place inside the school’s gymnasium and gave staff, family and community members the opportunity to shop local this holiday season. The creative student-made products included everything from Emoji pillows and duct tape wallets to survival bracelets and soaps – to name a few.
Students from Mr. Henderson and Mr. Barichello’s classes have been working on their prototypes since early October. “Along with learning all about what it takes to operate a small business, students all donate 20 percent of their profit to local charities,” explained teacher Brent Barichello. “Last year the Friends in Need Food Bank and the local SPCA received almost $700 in donations!”
