On February 24, TIME for Kids and Nickelodeon announced the first-ever Kid of the Year television special. The hour-long show will air on Nickelodeon and CBS in December. It will feature five outstanding young leaders who are making a positive difference in their community. One of them will be named the TIME Kid of the Year.
Trevor Noah will be the show’s host. He’s a comedian and an author. Noah says the TV special “celebrates everything that makes young people amazing, and gives them a platform to have their voices heard.”
