2010 HALO Awards: Lauren Huichan & Jordan Somer!

Meet Lauren Huichan and Jordan Somer, two of the 2010 Halo Award nominees!

The HALO Awards recognize deserving teens who are philanthropic leaders in their communities and were conceived, hosted and executive produced by TeenNick Chairman Nick Cannon, who shared, “The TeenNick HALO Awards continues to inspire young people to become agents of change. These four teens help and lead others because they believe it’s the right thing to do, which is why they deserve to be acknowledged and supported to continue their work.”

Each teen honoree was surprised by a visit from Nick and, in partnership with EIF, awarded a grant for their organization, a scholarship fund and an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet and connect with a celebrity who shares a similar passion for their cause.

Check out Jordan and Lauren‘s bios inside and stay tuned to learn more about the other honorees on JJJ.

The 2010 HALO Awards will premiere Friday, December 10th @ 8PM ET/PT on TeenNick, followed by an encore on Nick at Nite at 9PM.

Lauren Huichan, 18, Albuquerque, N.M. – A troubled foster kid, Lauren was kicked out of multiple homes before choosing to change the course of her life with the support of the youth advocates Adelante. Now president of the group, she works to change the foster care system in New Mexico, advocate for teens in the system and ensure that other teens and kids do not have as hard a time as she did.

Lauren’s HALO match is Mariah Carey, an active Board member of the Fresh Air Fund, whose Camp Mariah enables inner-city youth to explore educational paths and career options while enjoying camp adventures.

Jordan Somer, 17, Papillion, Neb. – A pageant queen since age 4, Jordan created Miss Amazing, a pageant for young women ages 5 to 35 with both physical and mental disabilities.
