Nickelodeon announces new awards show: Kids' Choice Sports

Kids who would rather watch basketball than Big Bang Theory are in for a treat this summer when Nickelodeon premieres their first Kids’ Choice Sports awards show, a spin-off of the long-running Kids’ Choice Awards.

While the Kids’ Choice Awards focus on pop culture — TV shows, movies, music — this new awards ceremony will be all about sports. Michael Strahan, former Giants player and current host of Live! With Kelly and Michael, will host and showcase the year’s biggest moments in sports. Top athletes will be a major part of the show, competing in slime-filled competitions and showing off their skills, and the ceremony will even feature a half-time show complete with a live performance by a yet-to-be-announced act.

“Sports are a huge part of kids’ lives, and in the spirit of Kids’ Choice, we are going to celebrate it in the biggest, loudest, slimiest way possible this summer!” president of Nickelodeon Cyma Zarghami said in a statement.

Kids’ Choice Sports will air July 17 from the UCLA’s Pauley Pavilion.

Want to encourage the teens in your life to do more volunteer work?
