Holley High School Competitions


Welcome to the 3rd Annual Holley High School Competitions hosted by the Eastern Illinois University’s School of Business.

View past Holley Competition winners here

As in 2024, the competition will have three divisions: business ethics, business applications, and sales & entrepreneurship. 

  • In the ethics division, student teams will collaboratively analyze, present, and then respond to questions posed by a panel of judges regarding a common business ethics case all teams will evaluate
  • In the business application division, student teams will collaboratively solve common problems utilizing spreadsheets, word processing, and presentation software applications
  • The sales & entrepreneurship division will be a professional sales competition with students pitching an existing product to a panel of judges

Students will compete against teams from high schools and high school business organizations across Illinois. The experience promises to challenge students’ ethical reasoning, application skills, and presenting skills, as well as provide a wonderful networking opportunity. In the end, we aim to raise students’ awareness of the importance of corporate social responsibility and hone their abilities with business applications and presenting to a group. 


Prizes will be awarded to the top three case presentation teams. All competitors on a team will receive a certificate of competition and an EIU t-shirt.

Invitations will be sent out in late November of 2024.
