KPS Set to Host 'TREP$ Marketplace' Student-Run Vendor Fair May 31


SUMMIT, NJ - Kent Place School (KPS) Sixth Graders will host their student-run vendor fair -- the 'TREP$ Marketplace' -- on May 31, from 3 - 4:30 p.m. in the KPS Field House. The annual events sees the sixth-graders selling goods that they designed and created themselves.

The Marketplace, open to the public and accepting cash only, is the culmination of the 'TREP$' program, a series of workshops that teach children the skills to become young 'enTREPreneur$'. In collaboration with the school’s Genius Hour and Economic and Financial Literacy Initiative, students had time during school to develop and create their own products.

In the 'TREP$' workshops, children participated in hands-on activities to learn the business basics of product development, finance, marketing research, advertising, merchandising and salesmanship and more. Ultimately, 'TREP$' is an experience that rewards focus, determination, teamwork, creativity, communication skills and good old-fashioned hard work.
