In honor of Manufacturing Month the Essay Contest Theme is ‘Coolest Thing Made in Wisconsin’

MADISON – Wisconsin Business World – a program of WMC Foundation –launched the annual Business: A Force for Good essay contest on Wednesday. The essay contest is open to Wisconsin students grades 6-12 and cash prizes of $500 will be awarded to the top three essays. In honor of Manufacturing Month, this year’s essay theme is “What is the Coolest Thing Made in Wisconsin?” The contest invites participants to write an essay that is no longer than 1,000 words, highlighting the coolest product made in Wisconsin, the product’s company, and how that company has given back to their employees and community.

“Manufacturing is the backbone of Wisconsin’s economy. The manufacturing industry not only ensures Wisconsin has a strong, robust economy, it also provides hundreds of thousands of family-supporting careers,” said Michelle Grajkowski, Director of Wisconsin Business World. “This essay contest is so important because we’re encouraging Wisconsin students to see the opportunity and the incredibly positive impact that Wisconsin’s manufacturing industry has on its employees, its businesses and its communities.”

All entries must be received by December 15, 2021, 11:59PM. All essays will be read and judged by WMC staff and prize winners will be announced in early 2022.
