Questions? We have answers!

Does my product qualify?

Products must be made in Iowa. The manufacturers' headquarters does not need to be in Iowa. Products must be made using a manufacturing process. For example, a pizza made at a resturant would not qualify, but a frozen pizza mass produced by a plant would.

Who can make a nomination?

All are encouraged to nominate their favorite Iowa-made products. Self-nomination is strongly encouraged. (ABI staff members are excluded from nominating). There is no limit to the number of product nominations per person or per manufacturer.

How will a company know I nominated something it makes?

Companies with products nominated for Coolest Thing Made in Iowa will be notified by ABI.

Can a company have multiple products in the competition?

Yes, but only one product per company can make it into the Top Sixteen.
