Enthused about her venture in the kids' genre for the first time, Mini Mathur says, "I am really excited to be part of Pogo Amazing Kids Awards 2006.

Pogo is doing an incredible job by inculcating confidence in these kids and providing them a platform to showcase their talent to the country."

The Pogo Amazing Kids Awards 2006 research team and jury is in the process of short listing five nominees from each of the eight categories - arts, sports, music, singing, dance, genius, leadership and entertainment.

The next eight episodes will have three finalists in each category vying for the top prize by impressing the jury, viewers and thereby getting their votes. At this stage, the jury panel will be there to guide the finalists, spur them on and give them words of advice, while viewers' votes will play a crucial role in selecting the final eight winners. These will be followed by a grand finale that will reveal the final eight winners of Pogo Amazing Kids Awards 2006, informs an official release.

The winners of the POGO Kids Awards will be felicitated at a gala, in-studio event in Mumbai that will be interspersed with performances. The winners will be awarded with a child benefit policy worth Rs 5 lakhs and to further highlight their talent, the winning kids will get the chance to be on Pogo throughout 2007.

Pogo Amazing Kids Awards 2006 is divided into two sections, Pogo Voice Awards and Pogo Kids Awards. The Pogo Kids Awards segment will recognise exceptional talent and brilliance and reward them for their talents in multiple areas and the Pogo Voice Awards will yet again empower children from all over India to vote for their favourite celebrity icons amongst nominees in various award categories.
