Any product made in Virginia may be nominated under its appropriate SIC manufacturing industry category. There is no limit on the number of products that a person may nominate.
The product must be made in Virginia. The manufacturer’s headquarters do not need to be in Virginia.
The product must be made using a manufacturing process. For example, a restaurant that makes “made to order” pizzas would not qualify but a food manufacturer that mass-produces frozen pizzas would.
A company can have multiple products nominated in the competition but only one product per company will be allowed into the top three in each category.
There is no cost to participate in the contest. Membership with the VMA is not required.
