The Great Lemonade War

You are here

1,2,3,4… We declare a LEMONADE war!

Schools across the country are invited to join Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation and compete 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.

Register now so that you can begin fundraising. ALSF will mail participating schools a copy of The Lemonade War as well as additional fundraising resources. 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!

Schools participating in past Great Lemonade War contests have helped to raise almost $100,000 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.

Congratualtions to the 2016-2017 winner of The Great Lemonade War, Erpenbeck Elementary School in Florence, KY.
