The American Made Awards are an audience choice awards that spotlights the maker, supports local business and celebrates the handmade. As you can imagine there are many categories that are being considered. Thanks to the support of his fans and customers, Chocolat by Adam Turoni is currently 26th out of 317 nominees in the food category. Quite nyce no? But as you and I know, not everyone is a winner (contrary to what is taught to today's generations where everyone gets a trophy and no one looses) and only the top 6 make it to the next round. So daily voting is crucial.
They are gracious enough to allow one to have (6) votes per day. To vote simply go to this link: http://www.marthastewart.com/americanmade/nominee/81663
once there, click on "sign in", enter your email address, create a password and voila! your votes are now counting! Voting ends on September 22, 2013.
