Josh Hutcherson, Queen Latifah to honor teens

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Josh Hutcherson and Queen Latifah will help honor four teenagers at the awards show founded by Nick Cannon, which is set to be broadcast live for the first time.

Nickelodeon announced Monday that the "Hunger Games" actor and rapper-actress will present trophies at the fifth annual TeenNick HALO Awards, which recognize teen volunteers for outstanding community service. "Pretty Little Liars" star Shay Mitchell and pro basketball player Chris Paul will also present awards during the ceremony at the Hollywood Palladium on Nov. 17, which will be broadcast live on Nick at Nite.

Cannon says HALO, which stands for Helping and Leading Others, aims to "continue the conversations about issues that impact teens today, and empower young people to take action and make a difference."

This year's honorees are involved with causes such as transgender rights, autism awareness, urban revitalization and girls' education.
