|Objective||To teach kids how to plan, market and coordinate an event.|
Plan an event which appeals to your individual interests. For example, you could plan a neighborhood skateboard competition, a play, a hockey tournament, a talent show, a rock concert, a martial arts demonstration, or a dance recital. Work with a few other people to plan the event, market it, sell tickets and coordinate it.
1. Start by planning you event. Figure out and write down your answers to the following:
2. Organize a team of two or three friends and delegate roles/tasks to team members. Remember to take into account each persons individual talents when you are deciding who is doing what.
3. Get together with your team on a regular basis to talk about progress on the project and to solve any problems that arise.
4. Host your event!
5. Once the event has been completed think about how it went. What was successful? What would you do differently next time? Were they any unexpected issues? How could you make the event more profitable next time (concession stand, merchandise etc.)? If you made a profit consider investing some or all of the proceeds into your next event or business.
Mark this activity as complete when you have planned, organized and hosted your event.
