Megan Baker received a grand prize of $500 from the New Berlin, Wis.-based credit union. Baker wrote about teaching kindergarten readiness classes and other subjects at her Jump Ahead Summer Preschool. She earns about $80 a week. Four runners-up who received $100 are:
* Emma Landowski, 14, Kewaksum, who sells handmade scarves and bags; * Dillon Muth, 14, Palmyra, who sells natural meats; * Emma Lowe, 8, Grafton, who sells soap and air fresheners; and * Bethany Buikema, 11, Elkhorn, who sells decorated flip-flops.
Three honorable mentions were given to:
* Gloria Grzybowski, 11, Brookfield, who runs a jewelry-making business; * Morgan Laufer, 12, Watertown, for her Scent Sachet business; and * Michael Misorski, Hales Corners, for his MSJ Lawn Services.
The entries were judged on success of the youth’s business, creativity, originality, and the organization and legibility of submitted materials, the credit union said. Landmark has more than $1.4 billion in assets. The credit union is also a sponsor of the Emmy-awarded television series, BizKid$.
