Coolest things in Wisconsin reduced to a slice of 16

GREEN BAY, Wisconsin (WBAY) – Wisconsin produces a lot of interesting things. It’s time to vote on the coolest one to give a company bragging rights for 2021.

Voting is now open in the Coolest Thing in Wisconsin contest hosted by Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce (WMC) and Johnson Financial Group. For food and drink lovers, this could be a tough choice between New Glarus’ Spotted Cow, Jolly Good Soda – or a drink with an airplane propeller to put them on – Kwik Trip’s Glazer Donuts or Brakebush’s Signature Crispy Filet. .

For people who enjoy the outdoors or fun, you can choose from teardrop-shaped travel trailers, archery or clay targets, Skee-Ball, a Mercury Marine outboard motor or the Sea-Doo switch, or, for pilots, an integrated flight display system.

Heavy industry is also represented, including Caterpillar’s Cat Electric Rope Shovel, Broadwind’s 140-Ton Marine Crane (see our coverage on this here), and Drexel Building Supply’s off-site construction residential building, or the WiNDR for the manufacture of medical disinfectant wipes.
