It’s been a weird summer, and one of the casualties of this quarantined, COVID time we’re living in is the absence of lemonade stands.

Country Time Lemonade recognizes that millions of kids out there aren’t setting up their annual lemonade stands on street corners across the country, and so they’ve set up “The Littlest Bailout” fund for these young entrepreneurs.


Kids with lemonade stands can qualify for a $100 ‘bailout.’

If you’re age 18 or older (19 if in Alabama or Nebraska) and are the parent or legal guardian of a lemonade stand owner age 14 or younger, visit to qualify for a Country Time Lemonade $100 bailout.


Parents/guardians submit an essay and a photo to enter the contest.

Country Time Lemonade is asking: “How would your child use their stimulus check to juice the economy?” and parents/guardians submit their short essay (no more than 255 characters).

Entries also must include a photo of the lemonade stand/sign their child hasn’t been able to use (sent in JPG, PNG or GIF format).



Entries are accepted through Wednesday, Aug. 12; prizes awarded Aug. 13.

Gotta submit them by 11:59 PM Eastern Time. Then, 1,000 lemonade stand operators will be chosen to receive a $100 prepaid Visa gift card “bailout.” Winners will be notified by email, mail, or phone on Thursday, Aug. 13. Limit one entry per person and one winner per household.
