Montrose Daily Press: Nominations for ‘Coolest in Colorado’

What’s the ‘Coolest Thing Made in Colorado’?

The Colorado Chamber of Commerce has opened nominations for its first annual Coolest Thing Made in Colorado contest, a new statewide, community-driven competition celebrating the state’s vibrant manufacturing industry.

The nomination period closes on Sept. 9. An independent panel of judges will review the nominations and select the top ten finalists in late September.

The finalists will be honored at the Colorado Chamber’s annual meeting luncheon on Oct. 20 , where the Coolest Thing winner will be announced. The winner will be awarded the Coolest Thing Made in Colorado trophy along with the title and recognition of the Coolest Thing top winner for 2022.

In order to be eligible to enter the contest, the product must be made in Colorado using a manufacturing process. For example, a restaurant that makes “made to order” pizza would not qualify, but a food manufacturer that mass-produces frozen pizza would.
