Christian Home Educators of Colorado conference June 13-15
Several months ago, we learned of the opportunity for young homeschoolers with businesses to have a booth in the Christian Home Educators of Colorado conference Youth Vendor Hall. We felt it would be good for Emily to have this opportunity of exposure for her photography cards and to grow in her confidence and sales skills.
These pictures were taken after we had set up, but the table behind us was not yet set up. There were 36 Youth Vendors in all.
A view of the Youth Vendor Hall. We were glad to be on the outside row because people did not have to be looking both directions at once.
The man in the suit at the next booth was interviewing Amy, who was selling bookmarks. Emily was waiting for her turn to be interviewed. Three of the youth vendors were chosen as business winners and received cash prizes. Emily didn't win, but that was fine.
The next three pictures are the judge interviewing Emily. The Lord helped Emily to not be too nervous.
Here the judge is moving on to our other "neighbor", Josh who makes jewelry and key chains out of wire.
