Posted Saturday October 22, 2011 7:36 PM GMT

Paying tribute to good deeds done by the young stars of Hollywood, Variety's 5th Annual Power of Youth event was held in Hollywood, California on Saturday (October 22).

Taking place at Paramount Studios, honorees including Hayden Panettiere, Chloe Moretz, Hailee Steinfeld and Bailee Madison joined alongside one another to receive their commendations.

With seven celebrities receiving Power of Youth awards for giving back to society, the other three do-gooders toasted this time around were "Glee" star Darren Criss, "Modern Family" actor Rico Rodriguez and "Two and a Half Men" actor Angus T. Jones.

Getting plenty of support from their fellow Tinseltown pals, stars out in support of the charitable recognition included actress Debby Ryan, along with singers Rebecca Black and Greyson Chance.

Meanwhile, Miss Steinfeld recently penned a message about being picked as a Power of Youth recipient, in which she told, "I am really excited that Variety chose me and that I have had a chance to do some work with Share Our Strength. I have been so fortunate in my own life; I’ve never struggled with hunger and I can’t imagine how it feels to be uncertain of meals or access to good food."

She added, "The thing I liked most about the No Kid Hungry campaign was that they already had a solution to ending childhood hunger. So, there’s enough food in America and there are these wonderful food programs – like school breakfast and lunch and summer meals – but they are just not reaching enough children. An important part of what the No Kid Hungry campaign does is improve these programs and make sure that they are connecting with the kids who need them. That seemed so sensible!"
