"I need all you young people, I need all you to be educated. I need you to listen. I need you to pay attention," Zendaya said in her acceptance speech for the Choice Summer Movie Actress award last night in the Teen Choice Awards at the Galen Center in Los Angeles.
This was one of many inspiring, uplifting moments brought to teen viewers by praised celebrities from the entertainment industry. Among these moments were the several awards given out for various categories and many exciting performances.
Seven new categories were added to this year's ballot, including Choice Throwback TV Show and Choice Latin Artist. Our favorite funky gal Miley won the Ultimate Choice award. Maroon 5 took home to Decade Award. Bruno Mars received the Visionary Award and Vanessa Hudgens won the #SeeHer award. The night was one for the books (or TVs) and celebrated the on-screen, on-air, on-stage talents that inspire this generation.
