The Nickelodeon HALO Awards is one of a kind and it motivates everyone to be the best person they can be and help others. This remarkable award show – created and hosted by the one and only Nick Cannon, celebrated four, terrific teens who have made such a great impact in their community and in the world! Learn more about them below.

  •     Andrew Dunn, 14, Louisville, Ky. – Andrew Dunn started his organization, RAK Louisville (Random Acts of Kindness Louisville), in an effort to flood Louisville with kindness.  He was inspired after receiving an advent calendar from his mom, which required him to perform a daily act of kindness in order to receive a present.  Through RAK Louisville, Dunn encourages people to complete kindness challenges, organizes community events, helps students seek out service opportunities and motivates others to start their own projects.

 

  • Raegan Junge, 12, Keystone, Iowa Raegan Junge was six years old when she saw the destruction from a tornado in Missouri on the news.  Eager to help, she sold homemade bracelets at a local store, raising $1,600 for a couple who was affected by the tragedy.  This experience gave life to Raegan’s Relief Efforts, Junge’s organization that fundraises through bracelet, lip balm and garage sales, and donates and delivers products to people who have been affected by natural disasters. To date, Raegan’s Relief Efforts has raised over $23,000 in 25 different states.

 

  • Zoe Terry, 11, Miami, Fla.– Zoe Terry was bullied for the color of her skin and hair texture at a young age.  With the support of her mom and teachers, Terry came to feel comfortable in her own skin and realized that she wanted to help other girls feel beautiful and confident as well. As a result, Terry founded Zoe’s Dolls, an organization that focuses on girl empowerment and combats bullying through a variety of programs and events that incorporate fitness, self-expression and community spirit.

 

  • Caleb White, 15, Detroit, Mich. After observing a homeless man sleeping on the streets of Detroit, Caleb White started a community-wide effort, Caleb White Project, to combat homelessness and help build youth leaders through volunteerism. Since its inception, the project has donated over $300,000 to the homeless and enlisted more than 3,500 volunteers to help renovate houses, clean and repair treatment facilities and build relationships with youth in shelters through planned game nights.
