The Indiana Chamber of Commerce’s second annual Coolest Thing Made in Indiana tournament is underway, and the field has been narrowed to 32 teams. Public fan voting for the second round of the contest, which celebrates the state’s manufacturing history and innovation, is open through Thursday.

Manufacturers from across the Hoosier State are represented in the current round. Decatur, Goshen, Indianapolis and South Bend have multiple companies in the contest.
The competing companies and products vary widely, from a chocolate delivery service and dormant plant roots, to custom decals, campers and bourbon whiskey.
The overall winner will be announced at the chamber’s 2022 Best IN Manufacturing Awards Luncheon in December.
To participate in the tournament, the chamber says companies did not need to be headquartered in Indiana, but the product entered must be manufactured in the state. The initial matchups were generated via an online randomizer.
