SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Nov. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Dylan Capshaw officially announced that he had been selected as one of the final 20 nominees for the first ever Kid of the Year 2020 sponsored by Nickelodeon and TIME® magazine. Already a local celebrity and beloved community worker, Dylan first began his activism rescuing at-risk pets and wildlife as a very young boy. He has since established multiple service organizations, including the Dylan Capshaw Wildlife Foundation (DCWF) and sanctuary, along with two pandemic-response organizations: For The Frontline and The Sanitation Stations. The TIME® and Nickelodeon Kid of the Year 2020 recognizes extraordinary young leaders who make positive impacts on their local communities and have bright futures as societal influencers. As the contest narrows, the top-five honorees will be featured on an hour long special hosted by Trevor Noah with the ultimate winner to be pictured on an upcoming issue cover of TIME® magazine. The winner will be announced via a televised, star-studded, multi-platform event set to air Saturday, December 5 at 8 p.m. EST on Nickelodeon, CBS, TeenNick and Nicktoons.
"Whether it's an animal or a person, I want to help whoever I can," said Dylan Capshaw. "I just hope people stop thinking that you have to be an adult to do something."
