Edmonds-Woodway High School deaf students recently ran Q13 Fox TV for the day. The experience was part of JA BizTown — a program of Junior Achievement that involves a 8,000-square-foot mini-city where students experience how the “real world” works.

During their Q13 experience in late March, the EWHS students collected and signed advertisements, hosted the city’s news and interviewed a variety of citizens. The JA BizTown curriculum prepares students to apply for a job, participate in a job interview, write personal checks, use a debit card, balance a checkbook, pay taxes, donate to charity and run a successful business as a team.

This particular day was unique as the whole town was run by deaf students from across Washington state.
