NEW YORK-For the third year, Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia (MSLO) will present the Martha Stewart American Made program this fall.
Voting for this year’s American Made Awards competition began yesterday and will culminate in November with the American Made Event, which will include the announcement of the 2014 award winners. The program celebrates small businesses that are producing handcrafted goods here in the United States. Competitors for the awards come from the food, crafts, style and design categories, and 10 winners will be awarded $10,000, a trip here to the American Made event, the opportunity to be featured on marthastewart.com and in Martha Stewart Living magazine, and an appearance on Stewart’s Sirius XM radio show, along with marketing and public relations to help with their businesses.
An extension of this year’s program is the Martha Stewart American Made Market on eBay, a marketplace of American-made products handpicked by Stewart and the American Made team.
The American Made Event, which will also feature a lecture and interview series and a maker networking party, will be held at the MSLO headquarters on Nov. 7-8.
