I am doing good in school and right now it is summer school is out.

Seriously? I remember school getting out at the end of June...hmm I'd just do little things like mow neighbors lawns, paper routes, stuff like that. I don't even think it's legal to hire someone under the age of 16. (as far as I know)

Paper round, wash pots, do chores.

Ask your parents for 10 bucks to buy supplies and start a business washing cars?

Jeez kids these days, no imagination!

Or as The Boss said, Just study and concentrate on doing well in school.

You said in your last comment that you live in the country, so do I! I have found that there are many ways to take advantage of this when finding a job. Many seed companies need people to walk fields and detassel corn so it can be bioengineered. This usually pays *very* well for a starting job, but involves long hours in a field. Or you could look around for odd jobs that farmers may have, such as picking field rock, tearing down or cleaning an old barn, or numerous other chores. If you are tech-savvy, you could get a little bit of money helping people with their computers/electronics since the majority of people in rural areas are not neccecarily always the most up-to-date (just remember to do good work, be friendly, and don't charge too much)

Overall, getting at least some work experience during the summer is a great way to get a head start on paying for college and starting a list of individuals and businesses that you can use as references later in life. Hope this helps!

Last year when was 15 I started developing websites for local businesses.  You can always get a job doing that, its good money and doesn't take too much time.
