The orange carpeted event is invitation only and will naturally bring out DC’s elite, seeing as though this particular screening is honoring Senators and Members of Congress. Trying to catch a glimpse of the stars? The “orange carpet” arrivals begin at 7:00pm.
The inaugural TeenNick Halo Awards honors everyday teens that are positively impacting the world through philanthropic efforts. The awards will be given to the teens by LeBron James, Alicia Keys, Hayden Panettiere and Justin Timberlake. Each celeb shares a passions for the causes that the teens champion. The awards are hosted and executive produced by Cannon, in partnership with the Entertainment Industry Foundation.
Along with being granted scholarship funds, money for their organization and meeting said celebs, the honorees will also get a personal message from First Lady Michelle Obama herself.
