  1. Biztown was so fun! I really enjoyed doing my job as a bank teller. The only thing was that at the bank tons of people came in to make deposits. It sometimes got a little frustrating. What I learned was that even if being a teller looks easy it really is not.

  10. I was the IRS agent. It took so long for businesses to fill out their W-4 forms. When I printed the tax bills, I had to go to Nova Copy 14 times! My experience at Biztown was great and I think in later years the 5th grade should keep doing it!

  23. I really liked JA Biztown. I was a reporter for the radio station. I also liked getting my articles on the radio. The checks were kind of confusing because I thought it was hard to keep up with how much money you had. Every thing else was fun. I would really like to go again. Thank you to all the teachers for letting us go to JA Biztown.

  25. I really liked everything they had at BizTown. I really thought that getting all of the money in our desks was challenging because I worked at the bank. I learned how to write checks. I learned that when you endorse paychecks if someone spells your name on the check wrong, you have to spell it wrong when you endorse it. I had a fun time.

  33. I really liked Biztown. It was fun to get to write checks, write deposit tickets and to have your own checking acct. I was A ceo at the Biztown Bank. It was fun yet a lot of hard work. Some of the examples of how hard it was being the CEO of the Bank I had to: sign all the peoples loans, sign all the pay checks in the bank and deposit the peoples money. I think that all that learning payed off. I went to Biztown last year for summer camp and I was a Teller at the Bank. It was also a lot of work. I wish that I can go to Biztown next year!

  36. I think that being CFO was pretty fun and challenging. It was hard because you had to run down to Nova Copy. It also was easy to pay the bills and handle the checks. I think that on a scale of 1 to 10 it would be an 8. Now I know what a lot of people around the globe go through. Now I really want to go to the summer camp for that.
