Businesses can register now to enter the Coolest Thing Made in Indiana competition.

Indiana Chamber president and CEO Keven Brinegar said the competition is a way to celebrate the state’s long manufacturing history.

“It ties in very well with our manufacturing heritage and the fact that Indiana is the most manufacturing intensive state in the country and there’s a lot to showcase,” Brinegar said.

To participate, a company does not need to be headquartered in Indiana, but the product entered must be manufactured in the state. Companies are limited to having one product nominated.

“We want to hear from companies that make all kinds of things,” Brinegar said. “Businesses who have been around for decades or budding entrepreneurs. Our goal is to showcase the wide variety of manufacturing efforts taking place in the state that have helped our economy thrive.”

Companies entered in the contest will face off in a single-elimination bracket format. Winners will be announced in Feb. 2022.
