Want to see the products from your micro business sold at a multi-national retailer? Walmart is running an online contest, “Get on the Shelf,” for entrepreneurs (or micro business owners) to submit their great product ideas. The grand prize winner could see their product sold at Walmarts across the country! Entrants must be “age of majority” to enter, but don’t let this stop you, teens. You just might need a parent or adult’s help in submitting your product. The contest would be a lot of fun and, not to mention, a great way to get some publicity for your micro business! Entries for this year’s contest ended on February 22nd, but keep an eye out for the contest again in 2013. See “Get on the Shelf”‘s website for this year’s contestants, and start thinking about your product for next year’s competition.
Want to enter this competition, but not sure about a product? Check out my website for great micro business ideas that you can easily make to compete!
