DETROIT, MI – Student Caleb White is among four teens from across the nation to be honored at the 2017 Nickelodeon HALO Awards for young leaders who are changing their communities and the world by "Helping and Leading Others"!

The 15-year-old Northville resident and student at Detroit Catholic Central High is being recognized for his Caleb White Project, an organization he started after being moved by homelessness in his community. The organization, which is led by him and eight student board members, is a community-wide effort to combat homelessness and help build youth leaders through volunteerism.

Since its inception, the project has donated more than $300,000 to the homeless and enlisted more than 3,500 volunteers to help renovate houses, clean and repair treatment facilities, and build relationships with youth in shelters through planned game nights.

Caleb and three other honorees – Andrew Dunn, 14, of Louisville, Kentucky, Raegen Junge, 12, of Keystone, Iowa, and Zoe Terry, 11, of Miami, Florida – took part in a concert special taped at New York's Pier 36. The show featured pop stars Kelly Clarkson, Kelsea Ballerina and Hey Violet, among others. The one-hour special, hosted by Nick Cannon, will air at 7 p.m. ET/PT on Sunday, Nov. 26 on Nickelodeon USA.

The Nickelodeon HALO Awards 2017 also will feature small, immediately actionable ways for kids and families to help and lead others and join the HALO (Helping and Leading Others) Movement, which is a year-round pro-social initiative that recognizes kids who are making a difference in the world.

Nickelodeon has teamed up with longstanding volunteer partners Key Club and DoSomething.org to mobilize kids to participate in service projects, for the opportunity to receive seed grants or scholarship funds for school. WeHALO.com provides information on how to participate in the Nickelodeon HALO Movement and apply for HALO grants through Key Club and DoSomething.org.

Watch Caleb receive his honor at the must-see concert event of the season, the 2017 HALO Awards, hosted by Nick Cannon and featuring special appearances by top music artists, including Kelly Clarkson, Kelsea Ballerini, Hey Violet, Why Don’t We, Ayo & Teo and Jacob Sartorius, and Nick stars JoJo Siwa (Lip Sync Battle Shorties), Lizzy Greene (Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn, Tiny Christmas), Ricardo Hurtado (School of Rock), and Daniella Perkins and Owen Joyner (Knight Squad)!
