Nickelodeon HALO Awards (partially found annual awards show; 2009-2017)
The Nickelodeon HALO Awards (meaning Helping And Leading Others) was an annual awards show that aired between 2009 and 2017. It aired as the TeenNick HALO Awards on the TeenNick channel from 2009 to 2013. In 2014, it was rebranded as the Nickelodeon HALO Awards and aired on every Nickelodeon channel, save for TVLand and Nick Jr. The concept of the show revolved around acknowledging teenagers who are doing good for their community and the world. Each teen would receive approximately $10,000 to help further their education, donate to their charity, or donate to their charity of choice. About four teenagers would be selected to win the prize each year. As well as the awards, each show would have numerous celebrity musical performances and special guest appearances. The show was canceled in 2017 after Viacom enacted budget cuts and shifted focus to the so called "six prime brands", and despite airing for nine years, there is only one full version (and very few clips and information) available online.
