The Webby Awards, the leading international honor for the Web, today recognized Kelley Blue Book's kbb.com as an Official Honoree, a distinction that recognizes work exhibiting remarkable achievement. This is the company's second consecutive win as an Official Honoree.

The awards are judged by the International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences, a global organization that includes David Bowie, Harvey Weinstein, Arianna Huffington, Matt Groening, Jamie Oliver, internet inventor Vinton Cerf, and RealNetworks CEO Rob Glaser.
