DAVENPORT, Iowa, May 26, 2011 – Just when most students are packing up their books, participants in Junior Achievement’s (JA) summer programs are preparing to learn about success with support from two of the most well known brands in the business.

Junior Achievement Support:
In addition to the $10 Sam’s Club gift card offer, Sam's Club will make a contribution to help send a local JA student to summer activities offered by Junior Achievement. (The $10 gift card offer is available at the participating clubs only.)
During the school year, students learn about business by running JA BizTown. Now as a summer camp experience, JA is opening up the town for kids between the ages of 9-years-old and 15-years-old to give them a chance to find out what it takes to manage a city and run a business.
Junior Achievement has done some amazing things in Iowa that provide students with opportunities to learn about economics, ethics and careers with a purpose. The children and young adults involved in Junior Achievement represent the future of American business. Together with P&G, Sam's Club is supporting JA youth in its summer programs.
