Did Covid-19 crush your kiddo’s lemonade stand dreams?

Once again, Country Time Lemonade is turning lemons into lemonade! You may remember in the past that they paid the fees of kiddos who have been fined for running their lemonade stand illegally.

This year, kids are finding themselves in a different situation – not being able to have a lemonade stand at all due to the nationwide pandemic. To help with this, through August 12th, Country Time Lemonade is offering $100 in “bailout money” to kids who are missing out on this classic childhood fun.

In order to be considered, children under 14 must write an essay about how they would spend the money to stimulate the economy if they were to receive it, and include a photo of the sign they would have used for their lemonade stand.

Parents or legal guardians aged 18+ (19+ in Alabama and Nebraska) must go here to submit the application on behalf of the child.

Additional requirements stipulate that the essay must be 255 words or less and it must be written in English. Applications are limited to one entry per household. 1,000 winners will be chosen randomly from entrants who have met all the requirements. You can head over here to read the official rules.

    We entered! It was nice to give my daughter a project like this to get her imagination flowing. Seems like all they have is time these days!

    • Irene (Hip Sidekick)

      Good luck! You’re right, it’s a great way for the kids to get creative and enhance their writing skills!

      • Sdgirljen

        Just FYI the essay is 255 characters ( or words) and looks like it’s optional, but I’m proud of what my daughter wrote!

        • Sdgirljen

          I meant 255 actual letters, not words

    There is only 1000 people who will win $100, not everyone.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for the reminder, Sara!

    Children are fined for this! Yet, I see “peaceful protesters” burning and looting.
    We must live in a 3rd world country!

    • Rama Mehta

      And what is your experience/knowledge of a 3rd world country? It enough that we have racism and no tolerance; now you show your prejudice toward entire countries! WOW!
      What does that say about you? 🙂

    The kids definitely do seem to be more bored than usual summers:
    After living here for 14 years, this year is only the second summer I’ve seen kids running a lemonade stand– just in the last month or so, three times (three different groups of kids in three nearby neighborhoods).
