The TeenNick HALO Awards, hosted by Nick Cannon, was a star-studded event honoring teens helping and leading others (“HALO”).
TeenNick surprised 16-year-old Adele Taylor with an award and scholarship for her outstanding commitment to promoting literacy. At just thirteen, the exuberant middle-schooler founded Adele’s Literacy Library – a non-profit organization that donates books to schools and libraries to make a difference in the lives of others. Committed to helping children read, Target will donate money to Adele’s Literacy Library as well as 25,000 books to her hometown of Williamstown, N.J. The much-deserved surprises didn’t end there – tennis champ Serena Williams presented the award to the stunned teen (she had no idea!) before Jason Derulo serenaded her with his new hit song “It Girl.”
Check out the night’s best moments and
