What's the coolest thing made in Wisconsin? Wisconsin Manufacturing Commerce is running a contest to find out and Hometown Trolley is their first nominee!
WMC has asked Gov. Walker to declare October as Manufacturing Month every year since 2012. The goal has been to celebrate Wisconsin's largest business sector (20 percent of Wisconsin's GDP) and to promote manufacturing careers given the worker shortage in that sector. To create more excitement and buzz around Manufacturing Month, this year WMC is launching a contest to determine the coolest thing made in Wisconsin!
The first round of voting will take place September 2-12 and will narrow the field of contestants to the top 3 coolest things. Videos will be created of each of the finalists. The final round of voting will highlight the top 3 with videos and take place October 1-15. The company with the winning product will be revealed at the WMC Foundation State of Wisconsin Business event Tuesday, October 18.
Fingers crossed we make it to the top 3!
