New Orleans' Own Brandan Odums a DoSomething! Award Finalist

Written by
(InthekNOwla) -- NEW ORLEANS | The Do Something Awards have grown steadily since 2007, being seen on both The CW and as a part of the 2008-9 Teen Choice Awards. Celebrity presenters & participants have included hot acts like Scarlett Johansson, Usher, Lauren Conrad, Nick Cannon, Akon, and more.

In 2010, the Do Something Awards reached new heights, airing LIVE from Los Angeles on Vh1. Hosted by GLEE's Jane Lynch, the high-energy mix of pop culture & activism featured performances by Travie McCoy & Bruno Mars, Lifehouse, Natasha Beddingfield, and Jane herself. In addition to our signature award, the show honored celebs like the Jonas Brothers, Kathy Griffin, Kellan Lutz, and Snoop Dogg for their dedication to doing good. Megan Fox was even on-hand to introduce one of our 5 'Do Something Award' nominees. Check out the 2010 Do Something Award Winners here.

Continuing our partnership with Vh1, this year is sure to be even bigger & better than the last. Be a part of the magic that is the 2011 Do Something Awards!

Brandan Odums, 25
New Orleans, LA

Brandan grew up in a low-income neighborhood of New Orleans and lived through Hurricane Katrina. He is dedicated to improving the lives of underserved youth in his community, where high school dropout, teen pregnancy, murder and unemployment rates are overwhelmingly high. His organization 2-Cent produces webisodes and short documentaries that use humor and attitude to tackle serious topics like race, poverty, and sex. Their goal is to use this form of “edutainment” to educate and empower young people.
