As previously announced, Ben Platt will host the ceremony for a second time. He first hosted it in 2017, the same year he won a Tony Award for his performance in Dear Evan Hansen.

Nominees will be vying for the Jimmy Award for Best Performance by an Actor and Actress. This year, over 1,700 high schools and 100,000 students are participating in the events leading to the Jimmy Awards ceremony.
