Woodrow Wilson High School hosts 1,700 students, making it the largest comprehensive public high school in the District. Wilson students hail from over 85 countries and travel to school from almost every part of the District of Columbia. Wilson is undoubtedly one of the most vibrant and diverse schools in the nation, and its students have decided to celebrate this vibrancy by hosting a TEDxYouth event. In this event, students of all backgrounds will come together to share ideas in an intellectual and welcoming environment. Almost all of the TED Talks will be written and presented by Wilson students, and will cover topics ranging from climate change to autism to racial inequality. The talk will also feature musical performances, spoken word and poetry pieces, and selected excerpts from Wilson's two literary magazines "Yung Renaissance" and "LAVA."
