J-14's Teen Icon Awards honors the hottest teen stars, movies, TV shows, books, music, and web stars of the moment as voted on by J-14 Magazine readers.
For five days over Labor Day weekend, five of the categories were announced exclusively on j14.com each day. Readers had the opportunity to comment and suggest their favorites in every category.
The J-14 editors went through the comments and are now proud to announce the nominations based on the reader's feedback as well as those who most capture the essence of an icon in the particular category.
Voting is now LIVE, and readers will have one week to cast their votes as the voting ends at 12 noon on Thursday, September 20.
The award winners will then be announced in the December issue of J-14 Magazine, on stands October 29, 2012.
