Halo Awards on Teen Nick

This time the stars aren't getting the awards, they're giving them.

TeenNick, Nickelodeon’s 24-hour TV network exclusively for and about teens, unveils the first-ever TeenNick HALO Awards—a new concept in awards shows featuring four mega-celebrities who don’t receive the awards themselves—they give them out to deserving teens in support of their philanthropic causes. LeBron James, Alicia Keys, Hayden Panettiere and Justin Timberlake join TeenNick Chairman Nick Cannon in an hour-long special presentation that recognizes and celebrates real teens who are “Helping And Leading Others” (HALO) and working to making a significant difference in the world. The TeenNick HALO Awards premieres Friday, Dec. 11, at 8 p.m. (ET), on TeenNick, followed by an encore presentation at 9 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nick at Nite. Conceived, hosted and executive produced by Cannon, the TeenNick HALO Awards, in partnership with the Entertainment Industry Foundation, also features an exclusive personal message from First Lady Michelle Obama.

Nick Cannon recognizes real teens who made the difference. “The thing I love about the Teen Nick Halo Awards, is that this time the stars aren’t getting the awards, they’re giving them to ordinary teens doing extraordinary things.”

Watch an interview with Nick Cannon and more stars sharing stories of four remarkable teens celebrated by the HALO Awards.
