Martha Stewart's American Made:
Are you a maker who creates from the United States? You could be designer, chef, inventor, farmer or someone with an amazing passion project. Martha Stewart's team is looking to promote the best of the best, be sold in the marketplace and grants up to $10K with a trip to New York. I was really inspired by last year's winners. The accompanying American Made conference is a must for anyone who can go.
