Any product made in South Carolina may be nominated for Manufacturing Madness – The Coolest Thing Made in SC. There is no limit on the number of products that a person may nominate.
The product must be made in South Carolina. The manufacturer’s headquarters do not need to be in South Carolina.
The product must be made using a manufacturing process. For example, a restaurant that makes “made to order” pizzas would not qualify but a food manufacturer that mass-produces frozen pizzas would. Not sure if your product qualifies? Contact us.
A company can have multiple products nominated for Manufacturing Madness but only one product per company will be allowed into the First Round (Top 16 products).
Winning companies are prohibited from participating in the contest for one year, while each winning product is indefinitely prohibited from being nominated again.
Voting is open to the public.
Nominations will be accepted from February 7, 2022 through 11:59 p.m. on February 25, 2022.
Voting during the Popular Vote Round will occur February 28 through March 4, 2022, with the ability to vote for 5 products.
In the First, Second, and Final rounds, a voter may vote in each bracketed contest once. (See contest dates below.)
Thank you to everyone who participated and helped make 2022 SC Manufacturing Madness a huge success. We are already thinking about next year’s contest and will be updating this page with the schedule soon!
