Junior Achievement's BizTown Program Receives Major Sponsor

Junior Achievement of Greater New Orleans received a generous gift in support of its JA BizTown program from the Oscar J. Tolmas Charitable Trust. 

JA BizTown is a program that combines in-class learning with a day-long visit to a simulated city. This popular program allows elementary school students to operate banks, manage restaurants, write checks, and vote for mayor. The program helps students connect the dots between what they learn in school and the real world. This exciting educational opportunity is available to a school's 5th or 6th grade students. JA BizTown gives students an opportunity to explore the world of work and entrepreneurship while enhancing their personal economic literacy.

The newly named Oscar J. Tolmas Charitable Trust City Hall in JA BizTown is the governing body of JA BizTown during the simulation.  During the classroom curriculum, the students elect a Mayor who presides over JA BizTown on their simulation day.  The civil servants working in City Hall are responsible for maintaining order and holding student elections on a topic of their choice.  In addition, the civil servants are given the task of choosing the quality business and the most professional boy and girl for the day.

"We are excited and proud to receive such a generous donation from the Oscar J. Tolmas Charitable Trust," states Larry Washington, president of Junior Achievement of Greater New Orleans.  "The donation, in perpetuity, will enable us to not only continue the legacy of the great Oscar J. Tolmas, but to also increase the impact we can have on the young people in our community."

Oscar Judah Tolmas died December 2, 2013, at the age of 93. The New Orleans native served as a Naval Officer during World  War II. Upon discharge, he pursued several career paths,  including law, real estate development, and horse racing. He  served for several years on the LA State Racing Commission and  as Chairman for four years in the early 90s. In 2013, he was honored by the Louisiana Bar Association as a 70-year member, having graduated in 1943 from Tulane University Law School. The mission of the Oscar J. Tolmas Charitable Trust is to spread the legacy and generosity of Oscar J. Tolmas throughout the region by assisting local charitable organizations with their missions of helping others.
