PORTLAND — Local kids will be mixing up their best batches of lemonade on Saturday in a recipe contest at the Children’s Museum in Portland.

The recipes will be judged on taste, healthiness and presentation.

The Hannaford Lemonade Recipe Contest, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., will prepare the young entrepreneurs for upcoming Lemonade Day Maine — and could give them a leg-up on their competition.

On June 5, participants in Lemonade Day Maine can get a crash course in running a business by learning about marketing, budgeting and seeking investors for their lemonade stands.

The winner of the recipe contest will get a prime spot in the Old Port for his or her lemonade stand on Lemonade Day, as well as four tickets to a Sea Dogs game and a $25 gift certificate to Hannaford.

Lemonade Day Maine is sponsored by Bangor Savings Bank, in cooperation with the Children’s Museum and Theatre of Maine, Boys and Girls Club, Portland and South Portland recreation departments, LearningWorks, Portland Public Library, Root Cellar and Munjoy Hill Neighborhood Organization.
