NEW YORK, June 3 /PRNewswire/ — Seventeen, the all-American magazine, announced today the nominees for THE 4TH ANNUAL 2002 TEEN CHOICE AWARDS which is scheduled to air Monday, August 19 (8-10 p.m. ET/PT) on FOX, with Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears and Sarah Michelle Geller taking the lead for the most nominations.
Teen’s age 13-19 can vote for the winners by mailing in the ballot found in seventeen’s July and August issues or by logging onto seventeen.com.
“THE 2002 TEEN CHOICE AWARDS provides teenagers a fun forum to voice their opinions about the hottest actors, musicians and athletes,” said Annemarie Iverson, seventeen’s editor-in-chief. “Unlike most awards shows that tell the viewers who the best artists are, THE 2002 TEEN CHOICE AWARDS allows for the teens’ personal participation in determining the results.”
In promotion of the big event, seventeen also announced “seventeen’s Ticket to the Stars Sweepstakes,” a contest that will result in fulfilling one lucky teen’s dreams of attending the awards show in person. The grand prizewinner will be awarded a 3-day/2-night all-expenses paid trip for two to Los Angeles, CA and two tickets to attend the Teen Choice Awards event. The winner will also receive $250 spending cash for the trip. Teens can enter to win by logging onto seventeen.com.
In addition, seventeen is producing a special “Stars and Style” issue that includes features on THE 2002 TEEN CHOICE AWARDS and will be available on newsstands this summer.
