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. With the addition of the SLCC kiosk Oct. 22, the college is proud to announce that higher education is now a part of the JA City experience! While at the kiosk, students explore career options on SLCC’s magnetic wall, earn an SLCC “diploma” and earn money for their JA City accounts.
