NEW YORK - FEB. 10, 2016 - Extraordinary teen Jaylen Arnold fights to end bullying in a brand-new episode of The HALO Effect, "Jaylen's Challenge," premiering Monday, Feb. 22, at 8:30pm (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon. The episode profiles Arnold, a 14-year-old from Lakeland, Fla., who decided to take a stance against bullying and build a friendlier world through his organization, Jaylen's Challenge Foundation, after being bullied in school for his disability. Airing monthly on Nickelodeon, The HALO Effect highlights teens who "help and lead others "(HALO) in their community and inspire others to do the same.

In "Jaylen's Challenge," Arnold fights bullying with words and experience instead of fighting back physically. At the age of 8, he was bullied so severely because of his Tourette's tics that he had to leave school for three months. Upon his return, Arnold wanted to help other kids that were being bullied so he created the Jaylen's Challenge Foundation. His organization is dedicated to promoting awareness and prevention of bullying through education and community service. Arnold goes around the country giving presentations and workshops on the effects of bullying and how to stop it. He also helps kids create Jaylen's Challenge Ambassador Clubs in their schools to help spread his "Bullying No Way" message.

Since its inception, the Jaylen's Challenge Foundation has taught over 130,000 children how to recognize bullying and to appreciate the differences in each other. In recognition of his commitment to anti-bullying, Nickelodeon's The HALO Effect will award a $10,000 grant to Arnold's organization.

In each episode of The HALO Effect, the profiled teen will issue a "HALO Effect Challenge," a call-to-action encouraging inspired viewers to participate in their cause and join the HALO movement. As part of Arnold's "HALO Effect Challenge," he is encouraging everyone to take part in Jaylen's Challenge and post a selfie or video of themselves performing a random act of kindness. Viewers can get more information on Jaylen Arnold and his challenge at www.nick.com/haloeffect. This episode of The HALO Effect is sponsored by American Family Insurance.

The HALO Effect launched in 2013 as a year-round initiative recognizing one deserving teen every month for their work to help and lead others in their community. The initiative was built upon Nickelodeon's HALO Awards, an annual concert event honoring young community leaders with a grant for their organization and scholarship funds. To date, more than 50 teens across the country have been honored and have received more than $400,000 in grants to fund their non-profit organizations.

The HALO Effect series expands Nickelodeon's ongoing commitment to the HALO movement by giving an in-depth look into the inspirational stories of teens who are eager to share the issues and projects important to them and excited to engage others to achieve impact. The monthly series is hosted by Sydney Park (Instant Mom) and executive produced by Nick Cannon and NCredible Entertainment, as well as Morgan Spurlock, Richard Arlook, Jeremy Chilnick, Matthew Galkin and Ethan Goldman of Warrior Poets.

Nickelodeon, now in its 36th year, is the number-one entertainment brand for kids. It has built a diverse, global business by putting kids first in everything it does. The company includes television programming and production in the United States and around the world, plus consumer products, online, recreation, books and feature film offerings.
