Calling young TEDxers

Calling all young Okanagan innovators, TEDxYouth wants you.

Organizer Jordan Kleckner is hoping Okanagan youth will embrace the opportunity to get engaged, "this is an open opportunity for our youth to get involved and work with a mentor to present at the TEDxYouth event in May. The theme is innovative youth, innovative ideas in the Okanagan. The idea is to give youth an avenue to have their voices heard."

TEDxYouth is officially coming to Kelowna next May 17th. The event will give youth from across the Okanagan the opportunity to share their innovative ideas at the Innovation Centre on Doyle Avenue.

"Our committee will actually be working with youth to pair them with a mentor to make sure they are prepared for the event. A former Ted x speaker will be providing mentorship and support to help our young speakers to prepare for their Ted Talk."

That's why we're doing the launch now to ensure plenty of time to prepare. We're looking for a diverse range of ideas, things that are affecting us globally and locally as well."

If you or someone you know are interested in becoming a TEDxYouth speaker, there is a launch event tonight from 5:30-6:30 p.m. at Hollywood Road Educational Services in Kelowna, BC.

Get details at the launch event on:

  •      What a TEDxYouth Talk is
  •      The selection process and criteria
  •      Details on how to make an effective TED talk

Applications for youth to become a speaker for this event will open Tuesday, February 13th and close on Tuesday, March 13th. All applicants will be notified via email by Friday, March 16th.
