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 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.
Congratulations to our top three schools in the 2015-2016 Great Lemonade War:
3. Erpenbeck Elementary School in Florence, KY
2. St. Jude School in Chalfont, PA
1. Deal Island School in Deal Island, MD
You can sign up now to be notified about Great Lemonade War. ALSF will mail participating schools 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. Watch the video and check out our lesson plans and contest rules below!
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.
