NASHVILLE (AP) — Junior Achievement of Middle Tennessee will welcome the 100,000th student to participate in JA BizTown on Friday in Nashville.

JA BizTown is a daylong program for elementary students that combines in-class learning with hands-on education.

Students, primarily fifth-graders, visit a fully simulated town where they learn functions of the real world that include operating banks, writing checks, managing restaurants and voting for mayor.

Organizers say the experiential activities teach students the importance of financial responsibility, workforce preparedness and entrepreneurial prosperity.

Founded in Middle Tennessee in 1957, Junior Achievement operates in 21 counties, reaching over 32,000 students annually in over 2,000 classrooms throughout Middle Tennessee.
