Financial Education: JA BizTown
Every year, SmartBank lends support to the Sevier County Board of Education by underwriting the tuition for each and every fifth-grade student to spend the day on campus at JA BizTown.
This onsite visit provides students with an opportunity to apply what they have learned in a realistic setting. Each student assumes a job, produces and/or sells products, receives a paycheck, works on a business team, repays business loans and manages personal bank accounts. Throughout the program, students are encouraged to use critical thinking skills to learn about key economic concepts as they explore and enhance their understanding of free enterprise. The goal of experiential education programs, such as BizTown, is to help students see how classroom learning connects to real-world actions and events. With fun as the focus at BizTown, every student will enjoy applying what they’ve learned in the classroom!
