Posted online

See and celebrate the Coolest Things Made in the Ozarks!  The top 16 Coolest Things will be featured in the April 25, 2022 edition of SBJ, with an event wrap-up and the unveiling of the Best in Show in the May 9, 2022 edition.

The top 16 will be chosen to represent the diversity in our manufacturing community by a selection committee that includes an SBJ editorial staff member, a leader from Missouri Association of Manufacturers,  a manufacturing educator, and two individuals that are selected from the business community.

From craft beer to furniture, from agricultural equipment to electronic components, from moisturizer to saddles, this event will showcase the best of Ozarks ingenuity. 

At the event, each manufacturer will be able to showcase their product at a booth during the social hour. During the event, we will recognize the 16 manufacturers on stage. Live voting will begin with publication of the April 25, 2022 edition and continues until 6 p.m. on April 28, 2022 to determine our Best in Show Award.
