The Great Lemonade War

We declare a LEMONADE war!

1,2,3,4… We declare a LEMONADE war! Schools across the United States are invited to join Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) in their efforts to raise money for childhood cancer research by competing in the 4th Annual Great Lemonade War! This contest, inspired by the book "The Lemonade War" by Jacqueline Davies, challenges schools to compete against each other to determine who can raise the most money through a lemonade stand project or other event.

The contest will take place from February 1st through March 31st, 2015.  Click here to register! Once you are registered, ALSF will mail a copy of the book "The Lemonade War" as well as additional resources to help with fundraising. The school that raises the most money by the end of the contest will win a visit from Ms.Davies and one of Alex's Parents, Liz or Jay Scott, with runner-up schools receiving Skype visits and a complete set of Lemonade War books signed by Jacqueline Davies. 


Congratulations to Spotsylvania Middle School (Spotsylvania, Virginia), the 1st place winner of the 2014 Great Lemonade War!  Spotsylvania Middle School raised an astonishing $11,271, in Memory of Jordan DuPriest. The second place winner, Alden Primary School (Alden, New York) raised an amazing $7,695, and the third place winner, Stewart Elementary School (Lower Burrell, Pennsylvania) raised an astounding $4,007!  On behalf of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, thank you! 
We are extremely appreciative of all of the participating schools, you truly have made a difference!

Schools participating in past Great Lemonade War contests have helped to raise more than $80,000 for childhood cancer research. From lemonade stands, hat days, talent shows, coin collections, staff for a day fundraisers and more, the students and teachers truly make it their mission to continue Alex’s legacy.
