  • Top 10 Ways to Have the Best New Year's Eve Ever!

    Posted on 12/27/2013 by Rachel1016

    Degrassi: Everything You've Done

    The Countdown to the New Year is ON! We're closing out 2013 by taking a look back at all of the amazing things that happened this year, and whether you've got big plans or are looking forward to a low-key hangout with your BBFs (furry and otherwise), we've got a few tips for making this New Year's one to remember!

    And don't forget to join us for TeenNick Top 10's New Years Eve Countdown! Starting at 11pm ET on Tuesday, December 31st, special guests Echosmith and 4Count will join our Master of Ceremonies Mr. Nick Cannon for a night of music, memories, and FUN!

    1.Decorate! New Year's Eve is one of the only acceptable holidays where using sparkles, glitter, and confetti in excess is allowed. String up the streamers, throw some confetti around, and blow up the balloons � the more color, the better!

    2.Pile on NYE swag! What other time of year can you wear glasses, top hats, and chain necklaces with giant numbers on them? Yes, New Year's accessories are ridiculous and over the top, but if you can't beat 'em, join 'em!

    3. Make some noise! The louder, the better � it's time to celebrate! Grab those noisemakers, horns, hand clappers, whistles, blowouts, and party poppers and start 2014 on a loud note!

    4. Dress up! Look, we love sweatpants as much as the next couch potato, but it's New Year's Eve. Why not slip on some fancy shoes, wear that nice crisp shirt, or sprinkle yourself in fun jewelry?! Or, if you're looking for something even subtler, swipe a little glitter on your face or mix it in with your nail polish or lip-gloss. Whether you're going out to a full-blown fancy party or ringing in the New Year from the comfort of your couch, those little additions will totally help put you in the spirit.

    5. Dance! Whether you're a twerker, a mosher, or a sidestep shuffler, it's one of the best days of the year to dance like no one's watching! Play DJ and pick your favorite songs from the year OR have your friends each pick five songs and create an uber playlist that all will enjoy!

    6. Chow down! Have some of your friends bring their favorite small dish to share. Crowd-pleasing thought starters include chips and dip, pigs in a blanket, or puppy chow! Not only will you spend less time prepping for the party but you'll be sure to have a great sampling of appetizers to keep everyone satisfied throughout the night.

    7. Game on! Let's face it; everyone's got a little competitive spirit in them. Dust off those board games from the closet or show off your Dance Dance Revolution skills. Either way, your night is bound to end in laughs. It's a win-win!

    8. Traditions for life! Did you know the Spaniards have a New Years Eve tradition of eating 12 grapes (one for every chime of the clock) at midnight? Or did you know that in Mexico, it' is tradition to write down a list of the bad events over the past 12 months and then throw it into a fire to help remove any negative energy at the start of 2014? Why not partake in some worldly traditions or make a new one up with your friends!

    9. Capture the moment…and save it for the next day! Posting photos is so second nature now that sometimes we forget to actually live in the moment and enjoy it. When you're snapping pics, remember to put the phone down once in a while and enjoy your company. Post them the next day when people are more likely to see them�and when you can take your time choosing cool filters and writing funny captions.

    10. Show the love! You know it's coming so there is no excuse to not be properly prepared when that midnight kiss comes along. Pop a mint, brush your teeth, apply that Chap Stick, do whatever you need to ensure that the first kiss (or hug with your BFF) of 2014 will be the best!

  • 2013 HALO Awards: The Honorees Show Us How To HALO

    Posted on 11/15/2013 by Chris McPherson

    HALO to HALO



    HALO honorees are pros at rallying their peers together and giving back to great causes. Check out some helpful tips they shared on how you can HALO!

    MIRANDA FUENTES: AUTISM ADVOCACY
    1. Getting involved in Surfers For Autism is easy. Visit our website, find an event near you, and follow registration instructions. Bring your suit and a smile. See you at the beach!

    2. If you want to volunteer with children and young adults with special needs, but do not live near a Surfers For Autism location, search for the nearest Special Olympics chapter. I have worked with special Olympics, it is an amazing organization!

    3. Educate yourself! Find out about autism. There are many stigmas with the disorder, but education and awareness are extremely important and can benefit in your volunteer work.

    4. Educate others: Did you know that 1 out of 88 children has Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)? Or that boys are five times more likely to have ASD than girls? Autism is the fastest growing developmental disability in the US, and there is no medical detection or/cure for the disorder.

    ZACHARY KERR: LGBT ADVOCACY
    1. It's okay to not always understand how people identify themselves, but you should always be kind and respectful of a person's identity.

    2. Try to use words and terms that don't single out one specific type of person or gender. Make your language inclusive.

    3. Always love and accept your friends for who they are.

    4. If you don't know something, it is always okay to ask or try to find out on your own. Your LGBT friends will appreciate the effort you put into trying to educate yourself.
    5. Speak up if you hear people saying unkind things about LGBT people. Making your voice heard will let an LGBT person who may not be out know that you're an ally and someone they can go to.

    ROCIO ORTEGA: WOMEN'S EMPOWERMENT
    1. My secret to overcoming stage fright is always having the mindset that you are the most awesome person in the world. And let's be honest, you are!

    2. The key to finding your voice takes two steps: 1) Find the issues you're passionate about and 2) Accept your social responsibility to make the change you want to see happen.

    3. Feminists aren't just women and girls, men and boys can also be feminists, too! They are our allies in achieving gender equality. Let's work together!

    4. Do a quick online research of the terms "feminist" or "female empowerment" and you'll be surprised at how much you can learn!

    5. Female empowerment comes in many forms, so combine different passions!

    DENZEL THOMPSON: URBAN ORGANIC FARMING
    1. Before you begin planting, the one thing you need to make sure you have is compost!

    2. To start compost, all you need are food scraps, such as different vegetables, fruits, and egg shells. Put all those scraps on a pile of wood chips to help it contain the smell and then wood chips on top of the scraps to make them break down faster. As long as you flip and turn the pile, the process speeds up in a matter of 3 or 4 months, and you will have all-organic soil.

    3. Plant different plants together so they can benefit from each other. If you plant tomatoes with basil, they will grow like trees and bushes.

    4. Growing all year will be tricky, but I've got tips for that as well! Before the frost starts, it's great to switch out crops. There are fall crops, winter crops and summer crops. During the winter, you can also cover all your crops with plastic and/or fabric. It's like making little miniature hoop houses to keep your crops safe from frost.
