The theme of TEDxYouth@PalisadesCharterHighSchool will be “Sparking Creativity.” It is a call to classmates and community members to interrupt standard routines and spend an afternoon considering alternative perspectives. We want to engage our audience by featuring speakers who are thought-provoking, entertaining and inspiring.
Palisades Charter High School is composed of students from different ethnic and economic backgrounds. By hosting a TEDxYouth event, we aim to bring our community together in order to spark unique ideas -- ideas we can all utilize in both the classroom and the real world. The event will be entirely produced, marketed, filmed and organized by students who want to bring a positive change to our community.
Our inaugural TEDxYouth Event will be held at Palisades Charter High School in the Mercer Hall Auditorium on Saturday, January 25th.
We invite students “of all ages” to attend. Please spread the word through Facebook and Twitter. Tickets will be available soon!
