Is there some central place to find current business plan competitions?

I run a woman-owned business in a rural town in Idaho. I manufacture snowboarding mitts that are made in North Idaho, and all materials come from the U.S. Where can I find business plan competitions that would apply to my business model?

No, there isn't really a central site. The closest one I know of is this: http://www.paloalto.com/academic/competitions/. But there are competitions coming up all the time. Search Google and Yahoo, and check with all the local universities by calling up their entrepreneurship centers in their business schools. You mention Idaho--Boise State has an active entrepreneurship center and sends teams to compete in a lot of the competitions I'm involved with (I'm a frequent judge).
