Made in WIS

Its that time of year again when the Wisconsin Manufacturer's Chamber holds the infamous "Made in Wis" contest! You can nominate Hometown Trolley here. After the Nominees are narrowed down, they will be eligible for voting after September 1st. Help us take the trophy this year! 

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!
