September 19, 2023 — Two Nebraska-made products are in a head-to-head race to claim the championship title in Nebraska’s “Coolest Thing Made in Nebraska” tournament for 2023.
The following Nebraska manufacturers and their featured products are finalists.
Public voting for the finalists in the bracket-style competition will be held Tuesday, September 19, through 11:59 p.m. Sunday, September 24 at nemanufacturingalliance.com. The first three rounds of the competition drew about 44,000 votes total.
The contest, hosted by the NE Manufacturing Alliance and powered by the NE Chamber and Nebraska Public Power District (NPPD) – together with your local public power utility, celebrates the state’s thriving manufacturing industry with Nebraska residents, students, educators, community leaders, manufacturers and especially, the more than 100,000 Nebraska makers working in manufacturing every day.
The tournament leads Nebraskans into the annual celebration of NE Manufacturing Month this October. The champion will be announced October 10 at the NE Chamber’s Manufacturing Summit in La Vista, where the top 16 finalists are invited to display their products.
