Want to get a mini-Corvette fix? Then come on down to the National Corvette Museum on Saturday, May 5 at 9:30 a.m.

Junior Achievement of South Central Kentucky will be holding its annual Mini-Corvette Challenge that day, helping to raise money for JA programs.

Officials with Junior Achievement met Tuesday to finalize plans for the event, which will feature 21 teams racing Corvette go-carts around the parking lot of the museum, competing for the gold cup.

“We match each race team with an area school, and so those kids at the school become the fans for that race team and they come out on race day and then they can also check in on race day and the school that has the most students to sign in receives a $500 cash prize, this compliments of Papa John’s, and a pizza party for the kids who come out that day,” says Heather Rogers, the president of Junior Achievement.

The Mini-Corvette Challenge has raised more than $46,000 since beginning in 1995.

The public can watch for free.

Junior Achievement’s goal is to teach thousands of students about the world of business,, including how to be ready for the workforce and how to become financially literate.

Here’s a very good promo running on WBKO and check out their photos from last year’s Mini Corvette Challenge.
