The Kid of the Year special, which was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award, will return to Nickelodeon in early 2022 to spotlight the top finalists from the search.

Trevor Noah, who served as host last year, executive produces the special, which will highlight five honorees, with one outstanding kid ultimately being recognized as TIME Kid of the Year, and featured on the cover of TIME and in additional coverage in TIME For Kids.

“The Kid of the Year recognition has helped me amplify my voice and gave me a global platform to share the need for innovation,” first ever Kid of the Year Gitanjali Rao said in a statement. “The entire process of selecting the honorees highlighted optimism, kindness, positivity, and shared the work of our generation. Each of us has different talents and we try to light up the community with whatever we can, and Kid of the Year showcases that talent and our ability to make a difference no matter how small it is.”

Submissions for TIME and Nickelodeon’s Kid of the Year are NOW open, through August 31st, at NickKidOfTheYear.com!
