Elementary students in Baldwin pitch business ideas in ‘Shark Tank’ style event
A group of second graders are the newest entrepreneurs at Brookside Elementary school in Baldwin.
The savvy students were able to convince a panel of school administrators to invest $85 in their startup lemonade business.
The student business initiative was modeled after the television show "Shark Tank."
Students researched and worked on marketing strategies for several weeks to prepare for Friday's presentation.
Funds from their new business will go to support Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation for Cancer Research.
