APEX 2006 — the 18th Annual Awards for Publication Excellence — is an international competition that recognizes outstanding publications from newsletters and magazines to annual reports, brochures and Web sites.

According to the APEX 2006 judges, “the awards were based on excellence in graphic design, quality of editorial content and the success of the entry in conveying the message and achieving overall communications effectiveness.”

LeBow College’s Web site was described as “a superb site - slick, crisp, dynamic, lots of action and ‘eye candy’ but still a ‘button-down’ business look. Very professional, fast, easy-navigating and very well-written site.”
