You determine the winners

The product that receives the highest number of votes overall will be our Grand Award winner. The votes in each category will then be tallied to determine Gold, Silver, and Bronze winners. Awards will be presented at a black-tie reception during the 2004 National Plant Engineering & Facilities Management Show (February 23-26, 2004 McCormick Place, Chicago, IL; www.manufacturingweek.com ).
