Tell us a bit about yourself

I am the Sponsorship Coordinator for Lemonade Alley. Lemonade Alley is a free contest that enhances the entrepreneurial skills of K-12 students as they sell lemonade for charity. ING DIRECT is sponsoring contests in eight cities, including San Francisco, and winning teams from each mainland contest receive all-expense-paid trips to Honolulu August 14-Visit for contest details and sponsorship opportunities. Building on its successful debut in Hawaii last fall, the Lemonade Alley kid-biz competition is expanding to San Francisco and six other mainland cities this summer with the support of lead sponsor ING DIRECT/Capital One that operates ING DIRECT Cafés nationwide. Presented by the BizGym Foundation, Lemonade Alley is a paperless "green" competition that develops entrepreneurial skills in kindergarteners through high school seniors by giving them a taste of what's involved in running a small business. I also have a nephew with Cerebral Palsy.

What is your role or interest in education technology?
