Here some answers to frequently asked questions about TEDxYouth at EB.
What time will the TEDxYouth event be held?
- December 1 and 8 from 7-8pm on Zoom. Links will be sent with invite RSVP
- We will be sending out a schedule when our speakers and activities are finalized.
- Each night’s event will end at 8pm.
- Attend one or both evenings!
Is it mandatory and how can I register my child?
- Attending TEDxYouth is not mandatory, but is encouraged.
- There will be a presentation and signup option by email and students will be informed about the event and rules of conduct for attending.
- Your child can decide if she/he/they would like to attend. Once your child registers, the parents will be asked to confirm that your child is indeed available and able to attend.
- Even if your child decides not to give a TEDx talk, she/he/they are encouraged to attend and support their fellow classmates, and engage in the project activities that are open to all who attend.
What if my child would like to speak?
Before the summer, 7th and 8th grade students were given the option to prepare a talk by their advisor. If they’re interested, the students sign up using an in-classroom form.
If a student is interested in preparing a talk, they should sign up before the summer when given the in-class option. The TEDx team will then contact the parents and share helpful TEDx information in how to prepare a talk. A draft of the students’ speeches are strongly encouraged to be prepared by the new school year, with the TEDx event typically happening the second week of November.
The speaking spots for 2020 are now currently assigned, so it is too late to sign up to give a 2020 talk. There are also opportunities for artwork to be included. Students should reach out to Sue Campbell or Gabrielle Hedlund for more information
We hope to continue the TEDxYouth@EB tradition, so if your child is a 6th or 7th grader, they will have a chance to create and apply to speak next year.
