Recognition

KidCEO School offers a robust and exciting recognition program for their entrepreneurs.

Ongoing Awards Programs

  • Occur monthly in the classroom (Green, Yellow, Orange cap awards)
  • Occur quarterly in an assembly with parents for public awards (Red, Indigo, Blue cap awards)

Each new KidCEO receives a green baseball cap. The program focuses on 4 main areas of achievement:

  1. Hours worked. Kid CEO School gives awards for important milestones in the hours worked. Students receive different colored hats for the hours they have worked. At a glance, the students can tell whom has worked in their business the longest.
