The Contenders: Page 2

21 Oregon Oregon Oregon is a state in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. Oregon is bordered on the west by the Pacific Ocean, on the north by Washington, on the south by California, on the east by Idaho, and on the southeast by Nevada.

A beautiful state that contributes things such as Nike, also having historical importance with things such as the Oregon trail.

Beautiful nature and one of the cleanest greenest parts of the world!

22 Arizona Arizona

Arizona is an amazing state, though (in my own opinion) way too hot!

23 Iowa Iowa Iowa is a U.S. state in the Midwestern United States, bordered by the Mississippi River on the east and the Missouri River and the Big Sioux River on the west.

Iowa is important the state provides the U.S. with corn and it's nice a peaceful to me.

Iowa is the leading producer of corn without it we wouldn't have to much corn

You guys are immature.

#1 producer of corn in the US

25 South Carolina South Carolina South Carolina is a state in the southeastern region of the United States. The state is bordered to the north by North Carolina, to the south and west by Georgia across the Savannah River, and to the east by the Atlantic Ocean.

South Carolina should be higher than it is. We have very strategic areas such as the Charleston harbor we also export a lot of timber that is used for houses and furniture and we are rich in history and beauty.

SC has a history of being one off the richest states from exporting rice, indigo, and cotton all those years ago and I believe that the US would not be what it is today without it.

Are you kidding, just about last in everything, especially education, come on people SC should be at least 49th

Bruh,as of what I learned in history,sc had so much in the past,why isn't this 1! - Nateawesomeness

26 Tennessee Tennessee Tennessee is a state located in the southeastern United States. Tennessee is the 36th largest and the 17th most populous of the 50 United States.

Without Tennessee there would be no Texas because it would be apart of Mexico. We have had three presidents and we always lead in people who sign up for the military hence the reason why we are called "The Volunteer State". We also have Jack Daniel's Whiskey and we are the country music capital of the world. Elvis Presley, Dolly Parton, BB King, Justin Timberlake, and Garth Brooks are all people who live in Tennessee.

We are definitely better than Maryland we have better schools and more presidents

Without Oakridge,TN we would not have been able to make the atomic bomb.

With low house prices, cheap land, and a growing economy, I think Tennessee may not be the most important state to the U.S., but historically and presently it has encouraged decisions by the government from the sidelines; it's a piece of the puzzle, but a good representation of the South. Crime rates are high in Tennessee, especially around Memphis, but so are Chicago’s, NYC’s, Los Angeles’, etc., pretty much any large city. But with the present economy, I think Tennesse is a better place to live in the South then several other states.

28 Missouri Missouri Missouri is a state located in the Midwestern United States. It is the 21st most extensive, and the 18th most populous of the fifty states.

33 Oklahoma Oklahoma

Oklahoma is pretty much just an underrated twin of Texas with more culture and resistance towards the United States. So yes Texas is important, as well as California, and Nevada, and Washington. But Oklahoma is well up there and okc is a very important city of trade in the west. On top of that we are surrounded by Kansas peoples, druggies, and rednecks. So for our placement in the us and multiple industries, we are quite important, but not the most

Oklahoma is great

34 Arkansas Arkansas Arkansas is a state located in the Southeastern region of the United States. Its name is of Siouan derivation, denoting the Quapaw Indians.

It is a very beautiful state with a lot of history behind it. When you drive down the road you can enjoy a beautiful scenery.

THIS IS THE WORST STATE IN THE US! Have you ever driven on roads in Arkansas? Horrible!

Arkansas is the best

You can get DIAMONDS

35 New Mexico New Mexico

I think this one should be a lot higher. We are the leading state that develops nuclear weapons

We got white sands...

Indies

We’re a smart bunch here in the Land of Enchantment. The state is home to more PhD holders per capita than any other state in the country. Why? The government. Albuquerque hosts Sandia National Laboratories and a number of other research facilities. Then there’s Los Alamos National Laboratory, Intel, and several land management agencies including the Forest Service and National Park Service. And don’t forget that Microsoft was famously established in an Albuquerque garage.

37 Wyoming Wyoming Wyoming is a state in the mountain region of the Western United States. The state is the tenth largest by area, but the least populous and the second least densely populated of the 50 United States.

Wyoming has the best scenery anywhere, and is the least-changed by the hand of man.

We produce the most coal and have the most guns per person

38 Wisconsin Wisconsin Wisconsin is a U.S. state located in the north-central United States, in the Midwest and Great Lakes regions.

In our state Wisconsin we could stop growing corn and producing cheese and milk. Keep up with that. Thousands of acres of corn that we really don't need to share

Our football team wins unlike in Minnesota

Since when is Wisconsin full of drunks!

Makes most of the cheese and dairy products in the USA and makes a lot of food for the USA. If Tthe USA didn't have Wisconsin the USA would need a ton more imports from other country's.

39 Kentucky Kentucky Kentucky, officially the Commonwealth of Kentucky, is a state located in the east south-central region of the United States.

Bluegrass Music, Kentucky Bourbon, Louisville Slugger, Abe Lincoln, the finest Throughbred Horses in the world and some of the most beautiful terrain in the lower 48. It's not the economic engine of the nation. But, The Bluegrass State punches way above its weight class in cultural contributions!

Du/de it does have rednecks but it still is the birthplace of America's greatest president Abe Lincoln and was discovered bye an amazing Explorer, Daniel Boone it is also 1 of the biggest farming state in America providing about 10

Bourbon, Banjos & Fried Chicken! How you gonna beat that Silicon Valley?

We have great horseracing and we invented the fake heart, of course we are awesome

40 South Dakota South Dakota

South Dakota is the better Dakota. East River is better than West River. One thing everyone in the state agrees on is that they wouldn't want to live anywhere else.

South Dakota is a major source for farming and poultry if we didn't have South Dakota, where would we get corn, meat, wheat and other crops?
