Raft Of Nickelodeon Stars Nominated In The 2016 Young Entertainer Awards

A wide host of Nickelodeon stars, guest stars and voice actors have been nominated for awards in the prestigious Young Entertainer Awards 2016!

The Young Entertainer Awards is a awards show run by The Young Entertainer Awards Foundation just for young entertainers, and aims to bring together young performers and their families to honor and celebrate their performance achievements in film, television, music, and stage.

The 2016 Young Entertainer Awards will honor performers aged 5-21 who have appeared in feature films, TV, cable, web, and live theater productions aired on television or internet, been released theatrically, performed on stage, or exhibited at an international or a U.S. film festival between January 1, 2015 and December 31, 2015.

The Young Entertainer Awards Foundation is a non-profit organization honoring & celebrating youth in the Entertainment Industry. It was created by various members of the entertainment industry who want to provide a positive incentive for young entertainers to perfect their skills, to build a strong foundation of confidence that will benefit them, not only in their present acting career, but also in whatever path they wish to follow in their future, and to provide a scholarship to an individual or to another organization or institution assisting talented youth who might not otherwise be able to realize their dream.

The 2016 Young Entertainer Awards will take place at the Globe Theatre at Universal Studios Hollywood on Sunday 20th March 2016.
