First lady Michelle Obama will be returning to Nickelodeon’s Kids Choice Awards this Saturday in Los Angeles to honor country singer Taylor Swift with the Big Help Award.

The award — given to Michelle Obama in 2010 — recognizes and honors those who try to make the world a better place.

“We are honored that first lady Michelle Obama, a past recipient of the Big Help Award, will be presenting this formidable and inspiring artist with this much deserved honor,” Nickelodeon Group Executive Vice President Marva Smalls said to the Washington Post.

Swift is receiving the award after she turned one of her tours into a charity event aimed at raising money to benefit those who have suffered from natural disasters.

This will be the second appearance that Michelle Obama has made on the Nickelodeon network this year. The first lady also appeared on an episode of “iCarly” to play herself.
