Paul J. Holloway Prize Competition- May 8, 2019

Holloway Competition Presenter

This multi-track competition takes students out of the classroom and into the real world. It challenges students to develop products or services and present their plans to bring them to market.


The story of a college kid hatching up a business plan in their dorm room is the first chapter to many successful now multi-million dollar starts-ups. Looking back at doing it myself, I can see why. The excitement of running from building my prototype to dissecting business plans is thrilling. I have a promising career ahead of me as a direct result of the people i met through Holloway and with hard work, anyone can acieve that.
Kate Aiken, past Holloway Competition finalist 

The Holloway Prize is open to all students in all majors at the University of New Hampshire, Plymouth State University, Keene State College, and Granite State College. The competition recognizes students who conceptualize, develop, and pitch the most compelling proposals to bring a product to market. After multiple stages of the competition, the final teams present their ideas at the Holloway Prize Competition Championship Round in May.

Holloway Prize in 1988 to honor his achievements and contributions to the educational and business communities. The Holloway family remains involved in the competition today, and their support has allowed for thousands of students to pitch their business ideas over the past 31 years. Read Paul Holloway's bio.
