The Indiana Chamber is calling for entry in its third annual Coolest Thing Made in Indiana competition.
Entry in the single elimination tournament is free. Nominations will be accepted through Oct. 10.
Companies do not have to have headquarters in Indiana, but the product entered must be made in Indiana. Only one product per business can be nominated.
Fans vote for their favorite products online during a tournament in late October and November.
“Each year, we are pleased to see the wide range of companies — large and small — that take part and proudly show off what they are known for. It’s wonderful recognition for them and helps us showcase all the great products that are home grown right here,” said Indiana Chamber President and CEO Kevin Brinegar in a press release. “It’s this variety of manufacturing that continues to help our economy thrive. We encourage both longtime manufacturers and budding entrepreneurs to participate.”
In the inaugural competition, Janus Motorcycles of Goshen took top honors, and in December, Maple Leaf Farms of Leesburg won for its roast half duck.
The winning product and its company will be featured in the Indiana Chamber’s “BizVoice” magazine and have the opportunity to appear in a chamber podcast. Awards will be presented at the 2023 Best IN Manufacturing Awards luncheon Dec. 13 at the Indiana Roof Ballroom in Indianapolis.
