From Mercury Marine’s outboard boat engine to BRP’s Sea Doo Switch, or from Astronautics’ Integrated Flight to Baytek’s Skee Ball Machine, or from Kwik Trip’s Glazers and Brakebush’s Signature Crispy Chicken Fillets, cool things are being made every day across the state of Wisconsin!

But we know there’s more! And, that’s where you come in. We are excited to learn about the coolest thing you discover that’s being made right here in our great state! Behind every great product is a rich company history, so your essay, must include information about the manufacturer as well.

To find some examples of what is made in Wisconsin, visit Coolest Thing Made in Wisconsin, a program of Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce. Visit
