Dayton native named Nickelodeon HALO Award winner

Daytonian Alanna Wall, 14, has just been named one of this year’s Nickelodeon HALO Award recipients. The HALO Awards is an hour-long concert special celebrating kids who are “Helping and Leading Others” (HALO) in their communities.

Alanna is being honored for creating Polished Girlz, the organization that brings trendy nail art parties to those with special needs and frequent hospitalizations.

Alanna and four other honorees were surprised with the news this past weekend in NYC where host Nick Cannon gave each one a check for $10,000 for their organization.

The Nickelodeon HALO Awards hour-long concert will be held at New York’s Pier 36 and premieres Sunday, Nov. 30, at 7 p.m.. The musical event will also feature performances by Nick Jonas, Meghan Trainor, Echosmith, and The Vamps.
