Four local companies are competing in the 2013 Martha Stewart American Made contest and there is only a few more days left to place your votes.
Voting in the contest sponsored by Martha Stewart Living opened on August 26 and closes September 22. The winners of six categories (food, crafts, design, style, gardening and technology) will be announced on September 23. Voters will then be asked to choose a grand prize winner between September 23 and 30. The 2013 Audience Choice Award Winner will be announced on October 1. That winner will take home a $10,000 grand prize.
The American Made movement celebrates local makers--those who create with their own hands.
The four Cape Cod competitors are:
Three are competing in the food category and one is competing under gardening. There are also four competitors from the islands.
You can vote for your favorite six times per day and each vote enters you in a weekly drawing.
On the Cape side, the sea salts are lagging behind vote-wise with Cape Cod Cranberry Harvest leading the local pack with 16,795 votes as of Friday morning.
The celebration of American made products is a natural fit with Cape Cod where farmers markets and artisan fairs fill the calendar year-round.
