Summer is a great time for kids to have someone to pal around with. This month, we meet an award-winning big and little pair.

Jason Davee confesses that Zach Feliciano, the little he met through Big Brothers Big Sisters, is like the little brother he never had. "I love hanging out with him. I've gotten more out of it than i think he has.

Jason met Zach almost two years ago-- and since then they've hung out at least once a week. Whether its making wizard hats or catching a flick- there's no shortage of things to do .

"We go to the movie theatres and watch movies," Zach says. "We cook spaghetti and enchiladas, we go to the movie theatre."

"We've seen every movie that comes out that's PG and below," Jason laughs. "We love cooking and just hanging out in general."

They have a great chemistry and we're not the only ones who noticed. A few weeks ago, Jason won the Big Brother of the year award, something for which he won't take all the credit.

"That's right, Zach and I won it. I was upfront when they announced it so me and Zach were jumping up and down, we were pretty excited," Jason says.

"I hadn't won anything big like that, it's like winning a grammy!" says Zach, reflecting on what it's like to have a big brother. "It's kind of fun because my dad doesn't live around here so it's nice to have some extra company.

"He doesn't call me his big brother from Big Brothers Big Sisters, just big brother and he's not my little brother from Big Brothers Big Sisters, he's my brother," Jason nods.

"Yeah...even though I have three!" laughs Zach.
