Nickelodeon is currently looking for young people between the ages of 13 and 19 who are working to promote early literacy, helping to educate and empower all young people to reach their full potential through various reading initiatives.
We are profiling very few teens so the ones that we select need to be truly amazing and inspiring – perhaps they’ve started their own organization or mentoring program, spearheaded their own campaigns or made a huge impact in their communities and/or in the lives of others.
If you know of any young people who fit this description, please send Veronica Friedman their names, ages, a short bio describing what they’ve done and who they are and if possible, contact information (preferably for a parent so that she can ask permission/get the teen’s phone number from them, if they are minors).
