Nickelodeon, along with TeenNick Chairman, Nick Cannon, and Grammy Award-winning recording artist, Mariah Carey, will host an invitation-only screening of the TeenNick HALO Awards
at Washington, DC's Newseum. Photos and interviews will be available on the orange carpet with Nick and Mariah who will be joined by Senators, members of Congress and the TeenNick HALO Award honorees.
The first-ever TeenNick HALO Awards Ã¢â‚¬â€ a new concept in awards shows featuring four mega-celebrities who don't receive the awards themselves but 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 this presentation that recognizes and celebrates real teens who are helping and leading others and working to making a significant difference in the world.
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. The TeenNick HALO Awards highlights the unique stories of four teens who have made enormous service contributions in their communities. Each teen is surprised with a visit by Nick Cannon and awarded a grant for their organization, scholarship funds and a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and trip to meet and connect with a celebrity who shares a similar passion for their cause. The TeenNick HALO "Helping and Leading Others" Awards premieres Friday, Dec. 11, at 8 p.m. (ET), on TeenNick, followed by an encore at 9 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nick at Nite.
