NEW YORK, Aug. 27 -- Teens everywhere have spoken, texted and voted and made it official -- The N's Degrassi: The Next Generation has once again taken home the coveted surfboard at this year's Teen Choice Awards in the category of "Choice Summer Series." The teen award marks Degrassi's second win in the same category, winning first in Summer, 2005. The Ninth Annual Teen Choice Awards were hosted by teen queen Hilary Duff and actor / comedian Nick Cannon and aired live on FOX last night Sunday, August 26 in Universal City, CA at the Gibson Amphitheatre.

"Our second Teen Choice Award comes on the heels of what is sure to be our best season yet. With season seven premiering this Fall and Degrassi also entering syndication, the hit series is sure to deliver all the teen angst that our fans love while introducing the series to a brand new audience around the country."

"How cool is it that Degrassi gets to take home another Teen Choice surfboard?" says Stephen Stohn, Degrassi's Executive Producer. "This fantastic win comes at a really exciting time for us as the series gears up for daily syndication throughout the US starting just next week."
