Like The Oscars for Corporate America
The American Business Award program, created in 2002 and nicknamed "The Stevies," is the only business awards program in the United States that honors and generates public recognition of corporate and executive achievements worldwide. The Stevie Award trophy is often called "the business Oscar" because it is hand-cast and finished in 24-karat gold by the same company that creates the Oscar. The name "Stevie" is taken from the name Stephen, derived from Greek term for "crowned." Past American Business Award winners have include Apple, Oracle, Hilton Hotels, and AT&T.

Independent Performance Expert Review Proven
In addition to its Stevie Award, the NewerTech KX has already garnered high praise from performance testing experts, including Macworld, which said, " … amazing levels of protection … highly recommended;", who called it "durable yet flexible … the KX more than lived up to the hype;" and MacNN, which awarded its highest rating, saying: "We were impressed by the build quality of the case … and were wowed by the shock-absorbing properties of it."
