The “Coolest Thing Made in PA” contest has been narrowed down to the final 16 contestants, and voters across the Commonwealth will have the chance to weigh-in when round two of voting begins at Noon today, Tuesday, March 21.


“After one week, nearly 15,000 votes have been cast and the excitement is building for what product will be named the ‘Coolest Thing Made in PA’,” Pennsylvania Chamber President and CEO Luke Bernstein said. “Chips versus beer; perogies versus Harley’s; guitars versus cheesesteaks; potato rolls versus Hershey Kisses – and it doesn’t end there! This competition is just an amazing showcase of Pennsylvania’s coolest products.”


Last week, news of the PA Chamber’s “Coolest Thing Made in PA” contest was broadcast across statewide radio, television and newspaper outlets. You can view the full list of coverage here.
