Young Maker's Expo Application Form

  • Hours of the Youth Makers Market are 10am-3pm both Saturday and Sunday. Options include a morning or afternoon booth space.
  • Example: I’d like to participate in Y-ME to display my product, which I think people will need because it is more efficient than other versions of my product, and I think Y-ME will be a great experience for me.
  • Example: People should want to buy from me because my product is all home made, and it can be efficiently cleaned and re-used.
  • Example: I have always loved to try and invent things, so one day I invented my product, and it was a design I was very proud of and wanted to share, so I decided to start selling it.
