TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) -- An annual summer event that uses lemonade to turn kids into entrepreneurs is in Tallahassee.

FAMU's School of Business and Industry is bringing Lemonade Day to the area. It's a national initiative, and Tallahassee is the first Florida city to take part since it started in 2007.

The idea behind Lemonade Day is a community-wide event for youth. Every child who signs up gets some entrepreneurship training, and then everyone sets up lemonade stands throughout the city to put those principals in play.

Shawnta Friday-Stroud and LaTanya White joined us on WTXL Midday for all the information parents should know about making their children "kidpreneurs." Click the thumbnail to watch the interview.

Tallahassee's Lemonade Day is June 13, from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. For more information or to get registered, call (850) 443-8544 or click here.  You can also take part on social media using #TallyLemonade.
