Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner have been given their share of special titles.

None of them, however, come close to being named two of Time magazine's Most Influential Teens of 2014.

"We are so honored to be included on the Time magazine list of ‘Most Influential Teens,'" Kendall and Kylie Jenner told E! News exclusively. "There are incredible teens on this list and we are so proud to be in their company."

The young superstars featured on the prestigious list are certainly leaving their marks on the world.

For example, Malala Yousafzai just became the youngest person to receive the Nobel Peace Prize in honor of her activism towards women's education.

Sasha Obama and Malia Obama, Jaden Smith, Austin Mahone and Lorde are also featured online.

For better or worse, most of the attention has been put on the Keeping Up With the Kardashians stars for their spot on the list. While some have disagreed with Time's decision to feature the girls, others like talk show host Wendy Williams support the decision 100 percent.

"They are influential to teens!" Williams declared on her self-titled talk show Tuesday. "Either teen girls want to look like them…or dress like them."

She added, "They follow them on Instagram. They should be on this list, that's all!"

Time magazine pointed out the girls business projects both on and off camera when sharing why they deserved a spot. 

Today, the tight sisters remain busier than ever. In addition to filming season 10 of their popular E! reality show, the twosome is hard at work on separate projects.

Kylie is gearing up for the launch of her own hair extensions line while Kendall continues to travel all around the world for modeling gigs.

Keep up the good work ladies. People are taking notice!
