Teddy Bear Picnic – 2019

A beautiful day to gather in Sunapee Harbor and enjoy singing and dancing.

Sunapee High School Economics class

Each  student designs a business they would like to someday own and operate.  As a culmination to the class, they pitch their business, “Shark Tank” style and try to attract fictional investors. As part of their preparation for this pitch, volunteers coach the students during a 1 hour session.

Here is how it works:   The coaching session is done “speed dating” style. The coach sits with one student at a time for 8 minutes.  The students give the pitch for their business and the coach provides praise, constructive criticism, asks questions and offers helpful ideas.

February 22, 2017 – In conjunction with the NH League of Women’s Voters, Project Sunapee sponsored an evening for community members to get to know their candidates. VIEW HERE.



On Thursday, December 8 local business owners and community members volunteered to help students at SMHS with their economics projects. Students had drafted ideas for businesses they would someday want to own and operate, and adults provided feedback. Students and volunteers rotated around the room in a “speed dating” format, meeting for about 8 minutes and then moving on to the next idea. It was a great afternoon with energy, creativity, and connection between community members and students. Interested in joining us next time? Please email
