The 4PA Children’s Business Fair inspires children to discover their inner entrepreneur. It is inspired by the Action Business fair which is the largest entrepreneurship event for kids in North America. The 4PA fair gives children the opportunity to showcase their very own businesses. Last year's event drew some 20 child businesses and was a huge success. Our 2019 event is expected to be even larger.

Recap of 2018 Children's Biz Fair
The 1st inaugural Acton Children's Business Fair of Steiner Ranch was hosted by 4Points Academy on May 5th, 2018. The event featured 20 child entrepreneurs, 5 of whom were students at 4Points Academy. The other participants came from different areas of Austin and Texas, including from as far as Houston. Each participant was assigned a Mentor, who reviewed the child's booth and product(s), asked relevant questions, and then provided a written feedback to aid the child in improving their overall product and/or presentation. During the award ceremony, the participants were addressed by Steiner's very own local kid-entrepreneur, Madi Smyser, who offered words of encouragement. Ms. Madi is a teenager in high school who has a successful cookie delivery business, Madi's Munchies. Madi has been featured on the Rachel Ray nationally syndicated cooking show.
At the end of the Fair, each participant was awarded a Certificate of Participation from 4Points Academy as well as a Recognition Award/Certificate from event sponsor, Raising Cane's, which included a coupon for a free meal. The event was a HUGE success!
