Congratulations to Tyler Posey, Nina Dobrev, Jake T. Austin and Abigail Breslin!
The quartet have been chosen as Variety’s 2013 Power of Youth Honorees for their continued work with charities.
Hasbro is presenting the July 27 event at Universal studios which is being dubbed the World’s Greatest Block Party. The Variety Power of Youth GenerationOn Award recognizes young stars who have made significant contributions to philanthropic or charitable causes. The guest-list at the invitation-only celebration will include children and families who have a connection to the causes embraced by the honorees.
Jake will be honored for his work with the Ronald McDonald House and Abigail for Project Sunshine, which aids children living with medical challenges. Nina will be honored for her work with Free the Children, which works to empower youth to be agents of change while Tyler is repping the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
“Celebrating Hollywood’s most influential youth alongside the very people whose lives they’ve impacted is what makes this event so special,” said Variety publisher Michelle Sobrino. “These honorees, in partnership with their individual charities, are igniting change and leading their peers, fans and communities by example. Power of Youth shines a spotlight on these incredible leaders, and hopes to inspire future young entertainers to continue in their footsteps.”
We want to send a big congrats to these four!
