Applications available for BYU Student Entrepreneur of the Year Competition

The Student Entrepreneur of the Year Competition, founded at Brigham Young University in 1992, is seeking to reward degree-seeking students who are currently running a business.

More than $30,000 in cash prizes in addition to in-kind prizes will be awarded.

Student entrepreneurs from all majors are encouraged to pick up an application at 470 Tanner Building and return it by Oct. 3 at 2 p.m.

The competition is sponsored by the Marriott School of Management and the BYU Collegiate Entrepreneurs' Organization (CEO). The competition is one of the two major business competitions on the BYU campus.

Past winners include Jonathan Coon of 1-800 Contacts, Dave Bateman of Property Solutions, Adam Edmunds from Silent Whistle and, most recently, Jayson Edwards of J-Dawg's.
