By Elsa Bolt  | 

If you're in the mood for some fast fun, read this! Junior Achievement of South Central Kentucky is getting ready for its annual Mini-Corvette Challenge.

The organization held a conference at the National Corvette Museum Tuesday, where they talked about the event, which is being held at 9:30 Saturday morning, May 5th.

21 teams will drive corvette go-carts around the museum's parking lot, as they compete for the gold cup.

The event raises money for programs put together by Junior Achievement.

The organization teaches thousands of students about the business world, including how to become financially literate, and workforce ready.

"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 local Mini-Corvette Challenge has raised more than 46,000 dollars for Junior Achievement since 1995.

The event is free to the public.
