14 racing teams, including those representing the Evansville Police Department, Evansville Fire Department, and Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office, will compete in races throughout the day to help raise funds for Junior Achievement.

Since its inception 18 years ago, the annual Grand Prix has helped raise over $530,000 for the chapter’s mission to give young people the skills and knowledge necessary in the 21st century with relevant, age-appropriate programs targeting financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship, according to Junior Achievement Event & Grant Manager, Stacy Carr.

Carr went on to say Junior Achievement is providing “solutions for parents who want to ensure their children’s success, educators who want to provide relevant learning and life skills, and communities that need a competitive workforce and economic growth.”

The chapter is no longer accepting racer entries for this Saturday’s Grand Prix, happening in the Vectren parking lot at the corner of Heidelbach and Division Street in Downtown Evansville, however the event is open to the public and free to attend with the first races beginning at noon.
