The Do Something Awards is an annually-televised awards ceremony featured on VH1, bringing positive recognition to the young movers-and-shakers from across the USA. The inspiring Do Something Awards show honors the “nation’s best young world-changers, 25 and under. Do Something Award nominees and winners represent the pivotal ‘do-ers’ in their field, cause, or issue.” [Quote: DoSomething.org]
The show regularly features notable young stars, like Lea Michelle, Demi Lovato, Kelly Osbourne, Justin Bieber, and Jennifer Hudson (to name a few). Many of these celebrities are recognized for their charitable efforts, and for making a difference in the lives of other people.
In addition to the star-watching, five nominees will appear on the Do Something Awards on VH1 and be rewarded with a community grant, media coverage and continued support from DoSomething.org. The grand prize winner will receive $100,000 during the broadcast.
This year’s nominees include young men and women from different walks of life who have all made the important vow to help others. They’ve made remarkable contributions that include the creation of organizations that work to end sex trafficking and prevent rape, assist homeless people by coordinating food donations from colleges, provide grants to rural poor communities in other nations, and other honorable efforts. To learn more about these incredible nominees, visit the DoSomething website, which also explains how you can do something and vote for one of them.
Boasting nearly 2 million members, “DoSomething.org is the country’s largest not-for-profit for young people and social change. DoSomething.org spearheads national campaigns so 13- to 25-year-olds can make an impact.” The causes they support range from helping animals to anti-bullying to education, supporting the environment, and many more vitally important topics.
