Tesco is creating a new Board to help shape a key initiative - made up entirely of children.
Six youngsters, aged from just nine to 12, will be selected on the basis of their budding boardroom skills as a fledgling director.
The young entrepreneurs will attend official Kids' Board meetings at Tesco HQ - and will be tasked with shaping the future of the popular Tesco for Schools & Clubs programme.
To be considered for a place on the Kids' Board, children will have to make the case for why they should be 'hired' through the online application. They'll need to demonstrate that they have a talent for making decisions and a vision for the future.
Nicky Cox, Editor of First News, the award-winning national newspaper for children and one of the judges selecting the Kids' Board said:
"Lots of our leading business figureheads say that they demonstrated their commercial skills from a young age.
"We hope this opportunity gives the nation's budding entrepreneurs of the future a flavour for what goes on in business."
In addition to the high profile position, the six Kids' Board members will each win 10,000 Tesco for Schools & Clubs vouchers for their school or club, as well as a laptop and digital camera.
Last year alone, Tesco gave away over 430,000 pieces of equipment to schools and clubs, worth a huge £9.3 million.
Entries close on 20th May. For more information or to summit a nomination for the Tesco Kids' Board please visit the Tesco Kids' Board website
