About a year ago, Finksburg mom Beth Merz asked her 14-year-old baby sitter what she was doing for the weekend.
When the teenager said she was hanging out with her friends at a local gas station, Merz was surprised.
“I was like, ‘What do you mean?’” Merz said.
Fed up with the county’s lack of activities for youth, Merz and mothers Kelly Griffin and Patsy Anderson are organizing an event next year for the county’s teenagers.
“We felt like there wasn’t enough going on in Carroll County,” Merz said.
The women have started Teen Expo Maryland, a for-profit business based in Eldersburg and run out of the women’s homes.
The one-day Teen Expo will be held in April at the Carroll County Agriculture Center and will feature products, vendors and speakers aimed at the county’s teen population.
One of the main events will be a Future CEO contest, a competition where the winner will come up with the best business plan. The prizes are business cards, a Web site and a laptop.
