    TORONTO, April 26 /PRNewswire/ -
 
     WHO:     Samantha (age 6) and Randilyn (age 9) Quinn along with best
              friend Stephanie Boddy (age 9) were quick to act when they
              saw little four-year-old Skyler Christou hanging out of a
              window with a torn screen four storeys up. The girls remembered
              a scene with a similar scenario from an episode of Pippi
              Longstocking and were able to catch little Skyler as he fell
              helplessly towards the ground and catch him in a blanket.
              Pippi Longstocking airs on television in Canada and the U.S.
 
     WHAT:    Nelvana, the producers of the Pippi Longstocking Movie and
              television series, along with Johnny Scott and Sandy Nunziata
              of the Toronto Argonauts, will present these three special girls
              with the "NELVANA SUPER KID AWARD". The award will include
              original Swedish collectors edition animation cells from the
              Pippi Movie, personalized Argonaut jerseys, gift baskets, and
              VIP field tickets for the whole family to tomorrow's Blue Jays
              home game.
 
              Clive Smith, Senior Executive Vice President and Co-Founder,
              Nelvana Limited says: "It is a tribute to these three remarkable
              young people that they were able to retain valuable information
              from a television show to act and save a life."
