TEDxGrandForks: Challenge Accepted took place on February 7, 2014 at the Empire Arts Center in downtown Grand Forks. This independently organized event, operated under a license from TED, was aimed at creating dialogue and action as well as giving the region’s best and brightest a platform for sharing their thoughts, ideas, and calls to action.

At TEDxGrandForks, TED Talks videos and live speakers combined to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, were self-organized.
