DuBois, PA – Don’t forget to bring some extra cash to the DuBois Mall this Saturday for the annual Kids in Business event!

Local students have put together business plans, created products, and are setting up shop in the DuBois Mall from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Saturday.

2021 Kids in Business is presented by Penn State DuBois, The Gourmet Kitchen, and Lifespan Family Services.

There are products ranging from pet treats and decorations to cupcakes and jewelry, plus much more. In the end, it’s not really about the products… it’s about supporting our youngest entrepreneurs!

Kids in grades kindergarten through 6th are invited to participate. If your child is interested and hasn’t signed up yet, there’s still time to register!

Even if your child isn’t involved this year, we’d love to see you there!
