LOS ANGELES, March 27 (UPI) -- U.S. first lady Michelle Obama is to present Taylor Swift with a prize at the 25th annual Kids' Choice Awards show in Los Angeles, Nickelodeon said Tuesday.

Obama will give the country music star the Big Help Award at the March 31 ceremony. Swift is being honored for her work with tornado and flood

survivors.

"Taylor's dedication to helping others has encouraged her fan base to do the same, and this is the very core of what the 'Big Help' is, inspiring others through action," Marva Smalls, executive vice president of public affairs and chief of staff for Nickelodeon Group, said in a statement. "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."

Obama received the Big Help Award at the 2010 Kids' Choice Awards in recognition of her leadership in championing healthier lifestyles for children through her Let's Move! campaign.

Actor, musician and producer Will Smith is to serve as host of this year's Kids' Choice telecast at USC's Galen Center.
