The TREP$ Marketplace is a unique shopping event taking place at White Rock School (2 Francine Place, Oak Ridge) on Wednesday, December 5, from 6:30-8:00. All of the vendors are children ages 10-11.

Over the past six weeks, 67 students have been participating in the award-winning TREP$ (enTREPreneur$) program to learn the basics of entrepreneurship. At home, they built their business with the help of their families. At the Marketplace, they will put their knowledge to the test by launching their own businesses for the night. All are invited and encouraged to attend and support the young entrepreneurs.

Kids will be drawn to businesses such as Finger Flyers, JP’s Pit Stop, and Hacky Sacks. Other companies will appeal to adults, such as Jingle Jars, Sprattuary’s Birdhouses, and Wicked Candles. All items will be available for purchase (cash only) in White Rock School’s all-purpose room.
