Martha Stewart Living wants to know who the next great American Maker is. They asked for American made companies to nominate themselves for the audience choice awards. Their editors will also be scouring for makers. Right now its your voice that matters. You can vote for your favorite maker from now until Sept 13. At that point the top vote getters will be finalists for a chance to win the audience choice award and grand prize of $10,000 to help them grow their business. Which will help them continue to make the USA a country of innovators.
I’ve compiled my list of favorite makers that deserve your votes. You can vote up to 6 times a day – Well, actually its every 24 hours. I wish the voting timeline was by calendar day, because my vote count was off by day 2. I voted late in the day on the first day, because the site experienced glitches from voting overload! – What a great sign! Lots of eager voters and makers sharing their pages!
It’s a bit of a challenge to search and find companies on the Martha Stewart site. Not to worry, I went the extra mile and made it easy for you. I searched the pages and pages of makers, (2300 makers in all!) listed under the categories of; design, garden, craft, food, style and technology. You’ll recognize many of the companies listed below as companies Modestics is proud to have featured in the past. And a handful of the makers are part of the Modestics Collection. They’ll be getting extra votes from me!
Martha Stewart and the sponsors of the American Made Awards are offering incentive for voters too! Every time you vote, you’re automatically entered into a sweepstakes drawing for prizes. So bookmark this page and get voting!
