Voting is open to the public which gives you the chance to spotlight your favorite manufacturer.

Mississippi Makers Association President and CEO John McKay explains the inspiration behind the challenge. “This is all about highlighting the incredible things we make in Mississippi and really the talent that goes into a lot of these operations and you have skills of all types of varieties and you have men and women from all of the state that really do incredible work.”
