POGO announces the young winners of Amazing Kids Awards 2006

POGO has identified eight ‘Amazing Indian Kids’ across eight categories – Artist, Dancer, Entertainer, Musician, Leader, Sports, Genius and Singer. Each kid received a citation, a trophy and a child benefit policy worth Rs 5 lakh.

Ian Diamond, Senior Vice-President and General Manager, Turner Entertainment Networks Asia, Inc (TENA), said, “Being a channel especially created for Indian kids, it is only befitting that POGO salutes young achievers of this great nation. With POGO Amazing Kids Awards providing these gifted children a platform to showcase their talent, we do hope that in some way we can become catalysts in their future success. I am glad that this year the final winners of POGO Amazing Kids Awards were chosen by kids themselves and there can be no greater success than by being recognised as truly amazing by one’s own counterparts.”

The final eight winners from the 24 finalists were decided upon based on votes received from kids across India. The 24 finalists had been selected through detailed assessment by a jury comprising Kiran Bedi (for Leader), Shakuntala Devi (for Genuis), Shantanu Moitra (for Musician), Bose Krishnamachari (for Artist), Kunal Kohli (for Entertainer), Anita Ratnam (for Dancer), Charu Sharma (for Sports), Vasundhara Das (for Singer), and Derek O’ Brien, who judged all the categories with the panel.

And the winners are: Pallavi Mazumdar (Artist), Rajkumari Sanathoi (Dancer), Muskan Vijay (Entertainer), Akrit Jaswal (Genius), Shravya M (Leader), K Sathyanarayanan (Musician), Aaron D’souza (Sports), and Vignesh Chandrashakhar (Singer). Sudev N M from Chennai was chosen as the lucky winner of the ‘POGO Amazing Kids Awards 2006 Vote and Win contest’. He got to take home an exclusive, Dilip Chhabria custom designed car.

That’s not all, kids also decided on their favourite icons – Hrithik Roshan (Most Amazing Actor – Male, for ‘Krrish’), Priyanka Chopra (Most Amazing Actor – Female, for ‘Krrish’), ‘Krrish’ (Most Amazing Film), Special Effects in ‘Krrish’ (Most Amazing Moment in a film), Masti Ki Pathshala (Most Amazing Song, from ‘Rang De Basanti’), ‘Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire’ (Most Amazing Foreign Movie), Paresh Rawal (Most Amazing Comedian, for ‘Phir Hera Pheri’), and Mahendra Singh Dhoni (Most Amazing Sports Hero, Cricket).

Instituted by POGO in December 2004, the POGO Amazing Kids Awards is the first-ever kids’ television award. The Awards recognise kid achievers and rewards them for their outstanding accomplishments in multiple areas of excellence such as arts, leadership, sports and music, among others. Kids are also empowered to exercise their choice and vote for their favourite icons from the world of music, sports, movies and television.
