Salt Lake Community College and Junior Achievement of Utah cut the ribbon - made of licorice - on SLCC's new interactive kiosk at the Spencer F. Eccles Junior Achievement City (JA City), located at The Gateway in Salt Lake City.

Junior Achievement's JA City combines in-class learning with a transformative day-long visit to a simulated town where elementary students operate banks, manage restaurants, write checks and vote for mayor.
