Holley High School Competitions


Welcome to the 2nd Annual Holley High School Competitions hosted by the Eastern Illinois University’s School of Business.


This year, the competition will have four divisions: business ethics, business applications, sales, and entrepreneurship. 

  • In the ethics division, student teams will collaboratively analyze, present, and 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 division will be a professional sales competition with students presenting their pitch to a panel of judges
  • The entrepreneurship division will have teams present their business idea in a shark tank style competition


Students will compete with teams from various 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.
