Coolest thingMade In Wis-final Wide

Nearly 300 nominations. Over 20,000 votes. One winner. The 2016 Coolest Thing Made in Wisconsin contest was undeniable popular with the Badger State. Harley Davidson–last year’s winner–is out of the running. Who will take the trophy this year?

To determine this year’s Coolest Thing Made in Wisconsin, things are going to be a little different. Starting August 1, anyone can nominate a product that is made in Wisconsin. Once nominations are in, a popular vote will determine the 16 coolest products and Manufacturing Madness will begin! This tournament style bracket will put Wisconsin products in head-to-head battles until the Coolest Thing Made in Wisconsin is named on October 16 at the State of Wisconsin Business & Industry Luncheon.

Congratulations to our 2016 Coolest Thing Made in Wisconsin: the Harley-Davidson Milwaukee-Eight Engine! Companies fought for every vote last year – launching social media campaigns, writing op-eds in local newspapers and even enlisting Green Bay Packer standout Clay Matthews to ask for votes. Any product, from any corner of Wisconsin has a chance. Do you have what it takes? Do you make the coolest thing in Wisconsin?
