The Utah Entrepreneurial Challenge is a business plan competition that allows students to apply their ideas and skills.

The winning team will receive $40,000 to fund its business, as well as services from local business firms.

The main goal of the competition is to give students a chance to apply their education to a real-world setting. More than 100 student teams will compete from schools in Utah.
