Young entrepreneurs cool off with sweet business

Posted:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

Some young eastern Iowa entrepreneurs looked to help keep people cool on a hot July day. 

Middle school kids participating in the University of Iowa's Jacobson Entrepreneurship Academy Class took to the streets, selling as much lemonade and cookies as they could in one hour.

Campers were responsible for buying, advertising, and then selling their products.

"You get to learn how to run a business and how to make a profit off your things," said camper Logan Rinderknecht.

The leading team, Hawkeye Tea and Treats, sold $55.60 worth of food and drinks.
