George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Center • Park City
TEDxYouth@ParkCity is a unique “by youth, for youth” event created in the spirit of Ideas Worth Spreading. TED began in 1984, as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers topics that range from science, to business to global issues. Independently run TEDx events share ideas in communities around the world.
TEDxYouth@ParkCity is a day-long event featuring student talks on big ideas, along with immersive and engaging activities. Students in grades 8-12 are eligible to audition for TEDxYouth@ParkCity Talk. Participants will learn to communicate big ideas in a concise format, through speaking exercises and coaching. Videos of the talks presented at TEDxYouth@ParkCity will be uploaded to the TEDxYouth YouTube Channel. Previous Park City student talks have received over 300,000 views. We are currently in talks with TED organizers to livestream this event, globally.
