The TeenNick HALO Awards is a yearly TV special that airs on TeenNick every November or December. It profiles four ordinary teens who are Helping And Leading Others (HALO). Created by chairman Nick Cannon, the show is unlike any other award shows. The HALO Awards "...flips the script and features today’s biggest celebrities giving out the awards instead of receiving them,” said Marjorie Cohn, Executive Vice President, Original Programming and Development of Nickelodeon[1]. It profile four teens who are usually seniors in high school or has just started college, that sacrificed themselves to better the lives of others.


Each teen is presented with usually $10,000 to further their education, another sum for their own charity or in cases where the teen does not have his/her own charity, they have the option of giving it to the charity of their choice. On top of that, they get to spend time with a celebrity who shares their passion.
