St. Louis Sprout & About has earned a 2013 APEX Award for Publication Excellence in the category of Websites. APEX awards recognize excellence in publications work by professional communicators.
Specifically, St. Louis Sprout earned the award for One to Two Person-Produced Websites.
"This award is a reflection of our dedication to connecting our readers with fun things to do with their families in St. Louis," said Beckie Maislin, publisher and founder of St. Louis Sprout & About. "We're thrilled to be recognized by APEX."
St. Louis Sprout & About is an online magazine and calendar that connects families with events and activities in the metro St. Louis area. The site is locally owned and independently operated and is the brainchild of Maislin and editorial director Jessica Pupillo. The site launched in January 2010, and has grown to employ one full-time employee, four part-time employees and several freelance writers.
