What qualifies as a MADE IN NEBRASKA product?
May a company have more than one product nominated?
Yes, multiple products of a company may be nominated, however only one product per company will be selected by the NE Manufacturing Alliance for voting in the first round of the tournament (16 products).
How will a company know that one of its products is nominated?
The NE Manufacturing Alliance will notify a company when its product has been nominated and selected for eligibility in the first round. Following notification and the company’s consent to compete, the NE Manufacturing Alliance will seed the tournament-style bracket.
How do you vote and how does a product advance in the contest’s brackets?
What is expected of a participating company?
(Please seek the necessary approvals of the appropriate headquarters or management personnel to release product descriptions, images and logos to the NE Chamber to use in public promotion of the
contest and vote generation.)
My product was one of the top 16 contenders last year. May we enter the contest again?
A top-16 product must sit out of the tournament this year, but your company may nominate a different product. Your 2022 top-16 product regains eligibility in 2024.
How often may a company or product win the COOLEST THING MADE IN NEBRASKA?
A winning company must sit out from competing in the tournament for one year and a winning product cannot participate in the tournament again.
