Business Plan Competition Application Form
In an effort to promote interest in independent community pharmacy ownership, the National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA) and the NCPA Foundation have established the Good Neighbor Pharmacy NCPA Pruitt-Schutte Student Business Plan Competition. The goal of the Competition is to motivate pharmacy students to create the blueprint necessary for buying an existing independent community pharmacy or to develop a new pharmacy. The Competition is the first national competition of its kind in the pharmacy profession and is named to honor two great champions of independent pharmacy, the late Neil Pruitt, Sr., and the late H. Joseph Schutte. Through this competition, NCPA is better able to prepare tomorrow's pharmacy entrepreneurs for a successful future.

The Pruitt and Schutte families initiated an endowment fund with the NCPA Foundation to help support annual operating expenses of the competition. The competition is supported by Good Neighbor Pharmacy, Pharmacists Mutual Companies, and the NCPA Foundation.
