Coolest Thing Made in PA

It’s Back! Pennsylvania is home to the coolest products made in America. From Hershey Bars to Harley Davidson Motorcycles, Zippo Lighters to Yuengling Lager, Crayola Crayons to Martin Guitars, the Keystone State is king in manufacturing – and we love to celebrate it!

Enter “The Coolest Thing Made in PA” –  a unique, engaging, bracket-style competition that pits made-in-PA brands against each other in match-ups determined by public voting. This year, after deliberation and soliciting suggestions from Pennsylvania brand lovers, we’re going bigger and better than before by doubling both the number of entrants and voters’ chances to participate!

Our 2024 “Coolest Thing Made in PA” competition includes 64 made-in-PA products and encourages voting via the PA Chamber’s X and Instagram pages. This diverse, dynamic bracket includes brands across Pennsylvania industries and all regions of the Commonwealth, and we can’t wait for you to get in on the game.

It all begins on Monday, March 18, at this year’s bracket unveiling. Voting will begin at Noon on Tuesday, March 19, and will continue each week through mid-April. We encourage employers, customers, and brand lovers across Pennsylvania and beyond to turn out the vote on X and Instagram throughout this fun-filled contest and showcase their love for their made-in-PA favorites!
