TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL)- Fun4tallykids is turning children into young entrepreneurs by holding their inaugural Tallahassee Children's Business Fair. 

The fair provides children between ages 6 and 14 with the opportunity to dip their toes into the business field. 

Children learn how to create a brand, develop a marketing strategy, and sell their products or services to customers at the one-day market place.

The Event Coordinator and Fun4TallyKids CEO Jessica Duncan says the goal is to "inspire children to be innovative and learn how to create a business."

"It could really inspire a lot of people in the community whether it's kids or adults who are coming and seeing these kids do their own thing and start up their own business. They're the future of Tallahassee," says Duncan.

Two young entrepreneurs Sinah and Llayna Mall were among the participants in today's event showcasing their business Dueces. Their business offers body care products such as lotions and oils.

Sinah says "it's good because we're always making things and being able to share them with people is good."

During the event, judges selected and awarded cash prizes to participants who had the most original and creative ideas.
